Register for Chapin Hall Event and Webcast on Child Well-Being

University of Chicago’s Chapin Hall will hold a live event and webcast on February 18, 2014 from 9:00 AM to 10:30 AM CST (10:00 AM to 11:30 AM EST). The event will focus on child well-being as a framework for policy and practice.

This event will discuss how policymakers and practitioners can use a framework of child well-being to create nurturing environments that promote healthy child development and help children who have experienced trauma and adverse childhood experiences get back on track. Topics for discussion will include: “what is included in well-being, how to measure it, and the implications for policies and programmatic approaches that improve well-being across child-serving systems.”

When developing effective solutions as part of a community change initiative, neighborhood stakeholders, including residents and other local policymakers and service providers, often look to emerging research and knowledge from the field to decide what to do. Identifying and implementing good ideas often involves asking what solutions have achieved results in other communities and identifying evidence-based solutions that can help inform both policy and practice in your own community. This event offers an opportunity to delve into child well-being as one organizing idea which can be used to consider “how policies, practices, assessments, and interventions … can more effectively ensure a positive life course for children” in your community.
