Leave a comment

Hello and Happy Friday!

Earlier this month, Carolyn Webster-Stratton presented at the Institute of Medicine forum in Washington D.C., “Strategies for Scaling Tested and Effective Family-Focused Preventive Interventions to Promote Children’s Cognitive, Affective, and Behavioral Health: A Workshop.”

The workshop included a variety of presentations examining “effective family-focused interventions at sufficient scale and reach to reduce the incidence and prevalence of negative cognitive, affective, and behavioral outcomes among youth in the United States.” (http://www.iom.edu/Activities/Children/ChildrensHealthForum/2014-APR-01.aspx)

Carolyn presented information about the Incredible Years programs, potential barriers to implementation/fidelity, and ways to overcome these barriers. Below is a video of the full presentation, which can also be found on YouTube and on the Institute of Medicine website!

Additionally, while there, Carolyn had a chance to “meet” Marilyn Monroe (a statue in the hotel lobby – she looks very realistic!) and found yet another good chance to “lean in”
