This workshop is designed for anthropologists and other social scientists wishing to develop frameworks, strategies and concrete plans for disseminating their work to multiple audiences and to develop interventions with specific groups with whom they have carried out research. Ethical practices of social science professions call for sharing research results with study populations, service providers, and policymakers and when possible, the development of interventions with the study population that address issues arising during the research. Neither dissemination of research results to multiple audiences nor approaches to intervention development with local communities is typically taught in anthropology graduate training. These components of dissemination and intervention are missing and are very much needed in the growing field of life-course studies and aging.
The workshop will be organized into two sections: a) dissemination planning, and b) research-based intervention approaches. An international group of experienced facilitators will use a combination of brief lectures and individual and small group activities to enable participants to create their own dissemination and/or intervention plans based on their own settings, materials, and research results. Facilitators will use case examples across the lifespan as illustrations. Dissemination plans will include framing messages based on research results to target audiences including the study community as well as other users. Intervention development will include partnership creation, an intervention problem and model, analysis of intervention resources and approaches, and links to broader theory. All participants will examine the ethical considerations of their work.
