About the topic:

When interventions target cognitive skills or behaviors, capacities or beliefs, promising impacts at the end of the programs often disappear quickly. This paper seeks to identify the key features of interventions, as well as the characteristics and environments of the children and adolescents who participate in them, that can be expected to sustain persistently beneficial program impacts.

This event is hosted by the National Poverty Center and co-sponsored by the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy, the School of Social Work, and the Institute for Social Research.
