Child Development and Social Policy by J. Lawrence Aber

Book Description

Child Development and Social Policy: Knowledge for Action expands on Dr. Zigler?s work in integrating the fields of child development and social policy, while using scientific knowledge for action as the model. Contributors discuss these key questions: What are the most powerful research insights of the last 30 years that promote effective action for children and families? What are the most powerful constraints or limits of our knowledge base to promote effective action for children and families? What are the primary components of short-term research agenda to make the most powerful difference for children and families? This edited volume focuses on both the influence of social policy on children?s development and the unique perspective, insight, and skills that developmentalists bring to this policy and its formation. Programs to ensure good beginnings for all children are discussed, while the needs of those who are most vulnerable are also addressed. "Child Development and Social Policy: Knowledge for Action" is part of the Decade of Behavior (DoB) series. This series reports on research and topics of study throughout the entire breadth of the discipline. Each volume is generated from APA Science Directorate sponsored conferences. Leading figures in behavioral and social science commit to organize a conference and edit a scholarly volume that showcases important and timely topics, and thereby further disseminate cutting-edge information to fellow colleagues and the field at-large.
