The role of teachers' depressive symptoms in classroom quality and child developmental outcomes in Early Head Start programs


The present study examined whether teachers' depressive symptoms are directly and indirectly associated with children's social-emotional and language development in the context of Early Head Start (EHS) center-based programs. We used the EHS Family and Child Experiences Study (i.e., Baby FACES 2009) with a sample of 275 toddlers and 197 teachers in 72 programs. (author abstract)
