He is an APA Fellow and serves on the editorial board of several journals, including Merrill-Palmer Quarterly and Early Education & Development. He was an associate editor for Merrill-Palmer and is currently a consulting editor for Child Development.
Professor Arsenio is interested in how children's and adolescents' affective tendencies and abilities influence their social competence, moral development, and aggression.
