Advances in Child and Family Policy and Practice

Div. 37 members using their MyAPA login are entitled to access the SpringerBriefs in Psychology series, Advances in Child and Family Policy and Practice. This publication serves as a forum for discussion of issues related to social policy and services for children, adolescents and their families with a particular emphasis on a psychosocial perspective. All briefs deal with policy analysis and implications at the local, state, national and/or international level. Articles include literature and conceptual review papers; analyses of policy trends; evaluations of programs, policies and systems; case examples of public and private policy issues; and advocacy needs, successes and failures, to demonstrate applications where psychological expertise might be applied.
