Research Interests:
Dorothy Shedlock is interested in lifespan development, especially during adulthood. Her research explores wisdom, a phenomenon that involved the integration of cognitive expertise and outstanding judgment in life matters with exceptional personality development. Wisdom is a potential gain that may offset declines that commonly occur in many domains of later-life functioning. She is also interested in social personality development, especially the formation and dynamics of close personal relationships. She has conducted research on how adolescent relationships with parents and peers influences their adjustment and achievement in college.
