Masha Gartstein, Ph.D.
Dr. Gartstein’s research addresses social-emotional development, primarily in early childhood, with an emphasis on identifying typical trajectories of temperament development, as well as risk and protective factors relevant to the development of psychopathology. In addition, parental contributions to both temperament development and the emergence of symptoms/behavior problems continue to be examined. She has been fortunate to collaborate with a number of wonderful colleagues abroad, who contributed to another area of research she is involved in, namely cross-cultural study of temperament development and developmental psychopathology. Dr. Gartstein has also maintained a part-time private practice with the Educational and Psychological Services in Moscow, Idaho for the past 10 years, providing a variety of clinical services to children and families.
