Advances in Child and Family Policy & Practice update

Advances issue on corporal punishment featured in PsycCritiques review.

By Barbara H. Fiese

Advances in Child and Family Policy & Practice issue on corporal punishment was highlighted in PsycCritiques review. The Advances issue on corporal punishment in U. S. schools was reviewed by Alan Kazdin in the Aug. 24 issue of PsycCritiques. This very positive review highlights how the volume not only reviews the literature but also where “science, public life, culture, tradition, religion, law, morality, and international policy converge and often conflict” (Kazdin, 2015). This thoughtful review illustrates how the series Advances in Child and Family Policy and Practice has the potential to influence research, policy and practice well outside the confines of Div. 37 membership. If you have an idea for an Advances brief, please contact Barbara Fiese.
