New Series Called #FactualFridays Focuses on Research Insights

January 11th, 2019     By Boys Town Contributor

Understanding Behavior

As part of our continuing effort to share our progress in better understanding child behavior, Boys Town is launching an exciting new series on applied research being conducted by the experts at the Boys Town Child and Family Translational Research Center®.

This research focuses on developing, evaluating and implementing evidence-based interventions for preventing and reducing children's social and behavioral problems, and promoting these interventions on a large scale to promote public health.

The series, called #FactualFridays, will provide practitioners, teachers, agencies, parents, caregivers and many others who work with children unique insights into children's behavioral issues and how research can continually generate strategies for promoting children's well-being.

At Boys Town, research enables us to develop practical, effective ways to produce lasting changes in the way children think and act, and to evaluate those strategies to ensure they are achieving that goal. We know the strategies Boys Town promotes are effective because we have decades of research (and experience) to prove it. In addition, our research helps us identify ways to improve current strategies and develop new ones that can work even better.

We will share #FactualFridays as a regular end-of-the week feature on Boys Town's Twitter and Facebook accounts so you can stay informed about the latest research happenings at Boys Town.  

We hope that by looking into our research, you'll discover new ways to help the kids in your care!
