Erin Seaton, Ed.D.; In-dependent Identities: Rural Adolescent Girls' Narratives of Isolation and Connection
Erin Seaton, Ed.D., is the 2005 recipient of a Stone Center Grant from the "Empowering Children for Life" Program. This program established in 2003 at the Wellesley Centers for Women supports research and evaluation that advances understanding of the role of relationships in fostering child and adolescent well being and healthy human development. The grant enabled Dr Erin Seaton to interview adolescent girls growing up in central rural New Hampshire. Her talk reveals the girls' challenges to crafting constructive self identities and the complexity of their relationships in their small town.
