In order for APSAC to achieve our goal of strengthening practice through knowledge,
we must ensure that up-to-date, high quality research results are reaching the practitioners
who need it most. To accomplish this, APSAC has assembled cadres of individuals working
in psychology, social work, medicine, child welfare, and law to write 2-3 page translational
summaries of articles from Child Maltreatment, APSAC's peer-reviewed, quarterly journal.
These briefs will be designed to provide clear policy and practice implications of the research
useful to people working in different disciplines.
APSAC collaborates with faculty at academic institutions to offer graduate students the opportunity to write briefs that meet our criteria and received feedback from professionals. Such briefs are identified with a "student author."
If you are interested in authoring Research to Practice Briefs or would like to bring them to your classroom as an assignment, contact Bri Stormer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
