Synopsis: Social Policy for Children and Families: A Risk and Resilience Perspective uses a unique framework to help students understand effective public policy development. Authors Jeffrey M. Jenson and Mark W. Fraser argue that a public health framework rooted in ecological theory and based on principles of risk, protection, and resilience is essential for the successful design of social policy. This book applies the authors′ conceptual model across the substantive areas of social policy, including child welfare, education, mental health, health, developmental disabilities, substance use, and juvenile justice.

About the Author:

Jeffrey M. Jenson, PhD, is the Philip D. and Eleanor G. Winn Professor for Children and Youth at Risk in the Graduate School of Social Work, University of Denver. His research focuses on the application of a public health approach to preventing child and adolescent health and behavior problems and on the evaluation of preventive interventions aimed at promoting positive youth development. Dr. Jenson has published seven books and numerous articles and chapters on topics of prevention and child and adolescent development. His 2014 book (with K. Bender), Preventing Child and Adolescent Problem Behavior: Evidence-based Strategies In Schools, Families, and Communities (Oxford University Press) is a comprehensive review of empirical evidence pertaining to the efficacy of universal, selected, and indicated preventive interventions for children and youth. Dr. Jenson has received several awards for his scholarship, including the Aaron Rosen Award from the Society for Social Work and Research. He is the recipient of Distinguished Scholar and University Lecturer awards from the University of Denver and is a former editor-in-chief of the journal, Social Work Research. Dr. Jenson is a fellow of the American Academy of Social Work and Social Welfare and the Society for Social Work and Research.
