On April 1-2, the forum held a public workshop on Strategies for Scaling Tested and Effective Family-Focused Preventive Interventions to Promote Children's Cognitive, Affective, and Behavioral Health. The workshop featured presentations on and discussion of how to provide effective family-focused interventions at sufficient scale and reach to reduce the incidence and prevalence of negative cognitive, affective, and behavioral outcomes among youth in the United States. Specific topics that were explored included successes and challenges in scaling family-focused interventions; financing and infrastructure, including how provisions of the ACA may influence implementation of interventions in primary care settings; and innovative models in scaling family-focused interventions.

The workshop was held at the National Academy of Sciences building in Washington, DC.  The full webcast of the workshop and speaker presentation slides are available under 'Other Meeting Resources'.
