Mental health researchers and practitioners explore how genetic factors interact with childhood experiences to induce mental problems later in life. Among their topics are the serotonin transporter gene and its implications for studying complex disease and traits, neurobiological mechanisms supporting gene-environment interaction effects, marital dynamics and child proaction, promoting resilience in maltreated children, shaping society through social policy, and some lessons from eugenics and the race-intelligence debates for gene-environment studies in the era of full-genome sequencing.
