C. Cybele Raver, associate professor of applied psychology and director of NYU's Institute of Human Development and Social Change, recently published a study, along with co-authors from Loyola and Harvard universities, in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology.
The study stems from the Chicago School Readiness Project (CSRP) that Raver developed; the study measured the impact of classroom-based interventions in Head Start classrooms. The interventions were designed to reduce children's behavioral problems and improve their readiness for school.
Sue Shellenbarger, a Wall Street Journal columnist who covers work and family, recently noted Raver's study in a column on classroom behavior.
