Frontiers of Research on Children, Youth, and Families: The Development of Human Potential in the 21st Century. Opportunities at the Intersection of Families and Communities.
Institute of Medicine (NAS), Washington, DC.
In 1997, the Board on Children, Youth, and Families launched the Frontiers of Research on Children, Youth, and Families Initiative to highlight recent policy-relevant research on children, youth, and families conducted by young and mid-career researchers. The initiative sought to encourage more sustained interactions between these researchers and policy makers, and to foster the development of young scholars who work at the intersection of science and public policy. This pamphlet describes the six research projects of the nine scholars: (1) "Multigenerational Coresidence and Welfare Policy" (Rachel Gordon); (2) "Neighborhoods, Families, and Children: Implications for Policy and Practice" (Margaret Caughy, Patricia O'Campo, and Anne Brodsky); (3) "The Lessons of Energy Express in West Virginia in Connecting Policy and Community" (Gretchen Butera and Van Dempsey); (4) "Promoting Academic Success and Preventing Disruptive Behavior Disorders through Community Partnership" (David Arnold); (5) "African-American Adolescent Males' Perceptions of Their Community Resources and Constraints" (Michael Cunningham); and (6) "Community-Based Interventions into Street Gang Activity" (Sudhir Venkatesh).
