Translation of Research into Interventions
Lochman, John E.
International Journal of Behavioral Development, v30 n1 p31-38 2006
This article discusses distinct ways in which research plays pivotal roles in the development, evaluation, refinement and dissemination of interventions for children and adolescents. A key challenge in interventions for high-risk children is to identify screening criteria for risk status. Longitudinal research is essential in creating a screening system with adequate sensitivity and specificity. Research-based developmental models should provide the framework for interventions as they are developed. These models can be then tested with the interventions, and ongoing developmental research can lead to a series of refinements of the interventions. Research can also provide essential information about who the programs succeed with and who they do not, and a newer phase of intervention research can rigorously identify factors which can bridge the "research-to-practice" gap, maximizing the effectiveness of interventions when they are disseminated into real-world settings.
