- Provisional Psychologist/Clinical Masters Candidate
Silvana Kaouar is a provisional psychologist and Master of Psychology (Clinical) candidate at the University of New South Wales. Her research interests include understanding and measuring the moderating role of early life experiences in the development of a range of childhood outcomes, including socialisation, behavioural expression, and emotion processing.
Silvana completed a Bachelor of Psychology with First Class Honours at UNSW, researching the moderating role of callous-unemotional traits on parenting style and conduct problems in childhood. Her Masters research will examine biobehavioural synchronicity between parents and children with varying levels of callous-unemotional traits, with a focus on salivary bioscience and observed parent-child interactions.
Silvana has experience working with children with behavioural difficulties across two child clinics in Sydney, in the capacity of a research assistant examining deficits in emotion recognition.
