2012 Youth Development Research Update gathers practitioners and researchers

The 2012 Youth Development Research Update was held June 5-6 at La Tourelle, Ithaca. The 48 attendees were from Cornell, youth service agencies (e.g. adolescent pregnancy prevention providers and youth bureaus), extension educators (4-H, parent education from 19 counties). Practitioners in attendance were very excited to have direct access to researchers. One researcher made a connection with a practitioner that will lead to a research project testing an intervention in the field.

The speakers:

  • Opening Remarks - Valerie N. Adams
  • Engaging Youth in Disciplinary Literacy: How Can We "Extend" Authentic, Relevant Learning? - Travis D. Park
  • Purpose as an Asset for Youth Development - Anthony L. Burrow
  • Puberty: Individual Differences and Emotional Development - Jane E. Mendle
  • Bullies and Their Bullying: Who Are They and Can We Stop Them? - Ritch C. Savin-Williams
  • Youths' and Families' Cultural and Political Knowledge: A Human Rights Perspective - Sofia A. Villenas

Throughout the event, several roundtable discussions allowed time to focus on application and implementation issues.

Each year the Youth Development Research Update brings practitioners and researchers together for a day and a half in Ithaca, New York. In addition to presentations on specific areas of research, the Research Update offers participants the opportunity to explore two questions: How can practitioners use research findings to benefit young people? Which questions emerge from the field that researchers have not explored and need to address?
