“Perspectives in the Study of ‘Minoritized’ Children and Families: The Need for a Paradigm Shift”

Abstract: Historically, both theoretically and empirically, “minoritized” children and families have been predominantly studied from deficit perspectives. More recent theoretical frameworks identify shortcomings in our prevalent theories, constructs, and empirical approaches to these populations. A paradigm shift is needed that will start by examining critically our graduate training, our prevalent research methods, and our mechanisms for funding and publishing.

“Parenting Skills and Child Development: The Importance of Positive Parenting and the Future of Skill-Based Approaches to Parenting Intervention”

Abstract: Many parenting interventions include a construct called “positive parenting.”  What is positive parenting and why is this construct central to family and parenting skill interventions?  This will be a discussion oriented presentation which will focus on the core components of positive parenting, interventions that have demonstrated effects on positive parenting, and implications for large-scale community dissemination across different cultures and contexts.
