Publication Alert: Child Development Article

FrameWorks Institute President and CEO Susan Bales has co-authored a paper with Jack Shonkoff, M.D., Director of the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University, that appears in the current issue of the journal Child Development. The article, “Science Does Not Speak for Itself: Translating Child Development Research for the Public and Its Policymakers,” argues that science has an important role to play in advising policymakers as they evaluate solutions to social problems that affect children’s development. And, further, that empirical approaches to the translation of science are necessary to determine the most effective strategies for explaining complex scientific concepts to nonscientists.
