Kim Gale Dolgin is a professor of psychology at Ohio Wesleyan University. She received her B.A., two M.A.'s and Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania. She teaches courses in adolescent and child development as well as human sexuality. Her research interests include parent-adolescent "friendship" in late adolescence, sibling relationships, children's understanding of emotional pain and the development of higher order, complex reasoning skills. She is co-author, together with Philip Rice, of the textbook The Adolescent: Development, Relationships, and Culture, now in its eleventh edition. Dr. Dolgin has received both of her university's outstanding teaching awards. She is an avid, long-standing reader of both fantasy and science fiction and would have named her children after Tolkien characters had her husband permitted it.
Dealing with the adolescent can be rewarding, but it also can be quite exasperating, commiserated Kim Dolgin, professor of psychology at Ohio Wesleyan University in Delaware, the presenter of "Resonating with Rebels: Establishing a Positive Relationship with the Adolescent Student.
Dolgin reminded us that this is exactly how two-year-olds respond to music, and this kind of activity can be extremely helpful in rekindling the kinesthetic sense that often wanes as we get older, she said. These activities also can inspire synergy rather than competition, which is exactly why fraternities and sororities engage in group bonding rituals, she added.

The findings are counterintuitive and that makes them all the more interesting,â€ said Kim Dolgin, Ph.D., an adolescent psychologist at Ohio Wesleyan University.
Dolgin â€" who had no affiliation with the study â€" called the data analysis â€œsophisticated and appropriateâ€ and said that the large sample size strengthened the studyâ€™s findings. However, Dolgin also said that the time lag between when they measured participantsâ€™ mood states and the crash could skew results.

Tension reducing exercises may also help these students to focus.Additionally, Dr. Dolgin provided examples of how to skillfully direct children with such issues as ADD, ADHD, poor social skills, and inattentiveness.

The findings are counterintuitive and that makes them all the more interesting," said Kim Dolgin, Ph.D., an adolescent psychologist at Ohio Wesleyan University.
Dolgin - who had no affiliation with the study - called the data analysis "sophisticated and appropriate" and said that the large sample size strengthened the study's findings. However, Dolgin also said that the time lag between when they measured participants' mood states and the crash could skew results. "Teen mood states are labile. Teens can be pretty stressed this month and then feel fine next month. So what we don't know from this study is, 'If I am depressed and anxious right now, am I more likely to be in a car accident?' That's an unfortunate limitation," Dolgin said.
