The Child Study Center Speaker Series - The Prevention of Early Conduct Problems
|Date||04/03/18 1:30pm to 2:30pm|
|Presenter(s)||Daniel S. Shaw, Distinguished Professor, Department of Psychology University of Pittsburgh|
|Location||127 Moore Building|
The current talk will discuss how our research in the identification of risk factors for preventing early-starting conduct problems has progressed from identifying malleable targets of change to adapting and testing the effectiveness of the Family Check-Up for at-risk, low-income toddlers. The remaining time will be spent discussing the use of the Family Check-Up and a more universal intervention, Video Interaction Project, in multiple platforms serving low-income children, many of which have not typically provided mental health services.
These platforms include pediatrics, birthing hospitals, Early Head Start and Head Start centers, WIC, child welfare, and family support centers serving low-income families with young children in the Pittsburgh metropolitan area. Both early successes and (many) remaining challenges will be considered.
