  • Brown University, MacMillan 117, 167 Thayer Street, Providence, RI

Brown University and Rhode Island KIDS COUNT are co-sponsoring the 2019 Lipsitt-Duchin Lecture in Child and Youth Behavior and Development by Ken Dodge, PhD.

Kenneth A. Dodge is the Pitzker Professor of Public Policy and Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience at Duke University, where he founded the Center for Child and Family Policy. He has articulated a social information processing model of child and adolescent behavioral development and has shown how public policy can be shaped to support healthy development for the entire population of children.

With colleagues, he has conducted longitudinal studies such as the Child Development Project and randomized controlled trials to evaluate the impact of prevention programs such as Fast Track and Family Connects. Dodge is trained as a clinical and developmental psychologist, having earned his BA at Northwestern University and his PhD at Duke University. Dodge was elected into the National Academy of Medicine in 2015. He has published more than 500 scientific articles which have been cited more than 77,000 times.

This lecture is free and open to the public. Register here.
