Public Policy for Children: A Psychological Perspective.
Feshbach, Seymour; Feshbach, Norma D.
The formulation of public policy affecting children requires the participation of a wide spectrum of psychological experts. This should include both investigator and practitioner, since each has something important to contribute to the discussion. The psychologist may contribute to policy analysis and debate in the role of expert or as advocate. It is important to distinguish between these roles, being particularly careful to avoid equating vigor of advocacy with certainty of scientific judgment. It is also important to establish a mechanism by which the view of psychologists can be most effectively formulated and expressed. (Author)
