Baptiste Barbot PhD

Assistant Professor (Adjunct) in the Child Study Center

Biographical Info

Dr. Barbot received his Ph.D in Developmental and Individual Difference Psychology from University Paris Descartes. His research focuses on creative thinking development in adolescence as a factor supporting identity formation and the prevention of externalizing and delinquency-related problems. He was awarded a grant from the Spencer foundation, to conduct a longitudinal research on this issue, with adolescents from the community and juvenile detention facilities. Author of several psychometric tests and assessment techniques (creativity measures, situational judgment tests and self-report measures of personality-related constructs), he has strong interest in psychological and educational measurement, and the application of new methods for the study and modeling of change and development. Through his expertise in the matter, he is involved in several projects at EGlab including a large longitudinal study on the role of maternal drug abuse in relation to children’s longitudinal trajectories of adjustment and resilience (with Dr. Suniya Luthar, Columbia University), and the analysis of change under the influence of IICAPS, a home-based, family focused intervention program to prevent the institutionalization of children and adolescents with mental health needs.
