McCabe new consulting editor for the Early Childhood Research Quarterly
January 8, 2014
Lisa McCabe, director of the Early Childhood Program, has been invited to serve as a consulting editor for the journal Early Childhood Research Quarterly (ECRQ). In this role, she will be reviewing and overseeing reviews of manuscripts submitted for publication. This new position follows her contributions as a guest editor (along with Juliet Bromer of the Erikson Institute) for a special section of ECRQ focusing on research on family child care settings. The special section of 8 articles was published in the December 2013 issue of ECRQ.
For over twenty years, Early Childhood Research Quarterly has influenced the field of early childhood education and development through the publication of empirical research that meets the highest standards of scholarly and practical significance. ECRQ publishes predominantly empirical research (quantitative or qualitative methods) on issues of interest to early childhood development, theory, and educational practice (birth through 8 years of age).
Dr. Lisa McCabe is director of the Cornell Early Childhood Program and a research associate at the Bronfenbrenner Center for Translational Research. Her research focuses broadly on early childhood education and care issues for children, families, and child care providers. Currently she is part of a project ("Superstar Practitioners") that aims to identify common dimensions of practitioners’ interpersonal practices and skills that promote high quality program implementation and positive client outcomes across diverse settings, including child care.
Dr. McCabe is also part of the Residential Child Care Project where she contributes to evaluations of the Therapeutic Crisis Intervention training system and the Child and Residential Experiences program. In addition to research, she conducts trainings and outreach activities on topics such as addressing children’s challenging behaviors, play-based learning, and children’s stress in group care settings.
Before coming to the Bronfenbrenner Center for Translational Research, Dr. McCabe was a Research Scientist at the National Center for Children and Families, Teachers College, Columbia University where she specialized in policy oriented research focusing on early childhood education and emotional development. She has also worked as a center-based child care provider for infants, toddlers and preschoolers. Dr. McCabe received both her M.A. (1995) and Ph.D. (1999) in Human Development from Cornell University.
