CYF NEWS special issue on the Well-being of American Indian Children, Families, and Communities
Submission deadline August 10th
The Committee on Children, Youth and Families (CYF), a standing committee of the American Psychological Association (APA), produces a bi-annual newsletter called CYF NEWS. Its audience includes academic researchers, clinical practitioners, policy makers, funding agency representatives, federal lobbyists at APA, and representatives at NIJ, OJJDP, NSF, and NICHD. All have interest in child, youth, and/or family topics and issues in the field. Thus, CYF NEWS contributions have the potential to shape dialogue, policy, and possible future funding directions that can affect the lives of children, youth, and families. It is imperative that contributions to CYF NEWS are well-grounded in scientific research and evidence-based findings.
Michael J. Lawler, MSW, PhD, Dean and Professor, School of Health Sciences, University of South Dakota, will be serving serving as a guest editor of the special issue, which will focus on the Well-being of American Indian Children, Families, and Communities. The special issue will review programs and practices that address the social, emotional, spiritual, and health needs of American Indian children, families, and communities.
