Location: Aqua Salon A & B, Level 3, Aqua Level

Keywords: Child | Translational Research | Early Intervention
Presentation Type: Panel Discussion

Increased understanding of developmental psychopathology documents the importance of children’s social ecologies as contributors to risk and resilience. Consistent with this year’s conference theme, panellists will discuss their efforts to broaden the reach of effective practice into the diverse educational and community settings that serve children. Each of our panellists has been involved with efforts to disseminate, and support implementation of, effective cognitive, behavioral, and related prevention and intervention strategies by speciality and non-speciality providers who serve children in schools and community child care and after-school programs. Panellists have worked to broaden the reach and effectiveness of services in a number of ways, including supporting the uptake of evidence-based practices in the specialty mental health and education sectors, enhancing mental health consultation to urban schools and after-school programs in high poverty communities, improving coordination in service delivery to children with behavioural and emotional difficulties (wraparound), reducing disproportionality in disciplinary actions to young people from diverse backgrounds, and providing professional development to child-care providers to enrich adult-child interactions and foster children’s cognitive-linguistic and behavioral-emotional development. Panellists will present the research and practice rationale for implementation of evidence-based practice in school and community settings, discuss potential requisites (knowledge, skills, materials, processes) for embedding practice in community settings, and describe posited principles and strategies (e.g., collaborating with community partners, aligning efforts with agency goals, supporting real-time implementation) for effecting practice change and improving service delivery systems.
