CID spotlight: Caroline Junge – Building blocks of social competence

Social competence is of fundamental importance in society. It is linked to prowess in other domains, such as health, academic success, and happiness. To optimize interventions aimed at improving a child’s social competence, we need a theoretical framework that captures the development of social competence in a changing society. CID contributes to the development of a theoretical framework, by adding a developmental perspective and an interdisciplinary collaboration where several lines of expertise come together.
