Andrew C. Grogan-Kaylor
Andy Grogan-Kaylor is Professor of Social Work in the University of Michigan’s School of Social Work. His current research focuses on the way in which parenting behaviors, like the use of physical punishment, or parental expressions of emotional warmth, have an effect on child outcomes like aggression, antisocial behavior, anxiety and depression, and how these dynamics play out across contexts, neighborhoods, and cultures. A lot of his work is done with international samples. In his work he uses advanced statistical models, like multilevel models and some econometric models, and software like Stata, R, HLM and ArcGIS, to examine things like growth and change over time, or community, school or parent effects on children and families.
