Introducing the Campbell Policy Briefs series – new publications designed to inform social policy and practice decisions
In our first Policy Brief, Professor Barlow summarizes evidence from five Campbell systematic reviews of parenting programs. These programs are designed to enhance parents’ knowledge skills and understanding, and to improve both child and parent behavioral and psychological outcomes.
The second Policy Brief summarizes evidence from six Campbell systematic reviews of the effects of school based interventions to improve student behavior. The interventions examined include cognitive behavioral therapy, counseling with at-risk students, and school-wide campaigns targeting destructive mind-sets.
The third Policy Brief summarizes evidence from five systematic reviews in the Campbell Library which examine agricultural interventions including technology, skills and the regulatory environment. The impact of the following interventions is presented: land titling, training and technology, farmer field schools, payment for environmental services, and decentralized forest management.
