Intervention: Translating Science to Practice
At the Shaw Center, we take what we have learned about supporting healthy development and use it to develop programs to help families. When possible, we use randomized clinical trials (RCT) to develop evidence that the programs work in the way we expect.
Childhood memory is key to emotional development and self-esteem. Psychologist Kristin Valentino studies memory among children abused or neglected and develops interventions to help them better cope with their emotions. The tactics are inexpensive and easy for communities to implement. With a high rate of success, her work is helping heal children so they can grow into healthy adults.
