Universal Approaches to Promoting Healthy Development

Universal Approaches to Promoting Healthy Development

Princeton University and the Brookings Institution released the latest volume of The Future of Children, a journal that promotes effective, evidence-based policies and programs for children, along with a policy brief titled “Achieving Broad-Scale Impacts for Social Programs.” This volume, titled “Universal Approaches to Promoting Healthy Development,” explores universal social programs designed to serve entire communities as they move toward achieving population impact in reducing child maltreatment, strengthening parental capacity, and improving infant health and development.

The issue and accompanying policy brief were discussed at a release event, with CFRP Director and Associate Dean for Academic Strategies at the LBJ School of Public Affairs at The University of Texas, Dr. Cynthia Osborne as the keynote speaker. Dr. Ken Dodge of Duke University and Dr. Deborah Daroh of Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago also presented. The event concluded with an expert panel discussion moderated by Ron Haskins, a Senior Editor of the volume and the Co-Director of the Center on Children and Families at the Brookings Institution.
