Paper Highlights
  • We examined the effectiveness of the Parent-Child Challenge Task, designed to assess individual and dyadic biobehavioral regulatory processes in early childhood.
  • Parents and children showed individual and dyadic changes in affect, behavior, and physiology from baseline to challenge conditions, some of which showed concurrent and predictive validity with children's externalizing problems.
  • The Parent-Child Challenge Task is an effective new tool for the assessment of individual and dyadic biobehavioral regulatory processes between parents and preschoolers.
