About this book series

Advances in Child and Family Policy and Practice is a SpringerBriefs in Psychology Series published in collaboration with the Society for Child and Family Policy and Practice (Division 37 of the American Psychological Association). The series serves as a forum for the scholarly review of psychological knowledge relevant to social issues, public policy, and service delivery that affects child and family development.

Briefs are comprehensive reviews of contemporary issues in the lives of children, youth, and families living in a society that values diversity, equity, and inclusion. Briefs examine a social, policy, systemic, service delivery, family, or developmental issue relevant to the well-being of children from birth through emerging adulthood. Briefs may also focus on professional, legal, and ethical issues that affect the structure and delivery of social, educational, and healthcare services to children, youth, and families.

Briefs may be a monograph written by a single author or several authors; they may also be an integrated set of briefer papers that explore different dimensions of a specific topic organized by a guest editor or editors. They may be proposed by a lead author or guest editor, and they may be solicited by the editorial board. Collections of original research reports are not considered for publication. All submissions are peer reviewed to ensure they represent a substantive contribution to the literature on child and family policy and practice. Each brief must also include a summary for use in education and advocacy.
