Society for Child and Family Policy and Practice
The Society for Child and Family Policy and Practice is committed to the application of psychological knowledge to advocacy, social justice, service delivery and public policies affecting children, youth and families in a diverse and inclusive society. The society advances research, education, training and practice through a multidisciplinary and culturally informed perspective. The society is interested in supporting culturally informed, evidence-based practice that promotes health equity with underserved and vulnerable populations.
Division 37: Society for Child and Family Policy and Practice is concerned with professional and scientific issues relative to services and service structures for children and youth. The Division seeks to advance research, education, training, and practice and relate psychological knowledge to other fields such as anthropology, law, and pediatrics in such areas as employment, education, recreation, and family planning. The Society's newsletter, Child and Family Policy and Practice Advocate, focuses on selected topics such as the critical needs of ethnic minorities, children's media, the effectiveness of child maltreatment prevention programs, and the treatment of violent juvenile offenders.
