Description

School-Based Research: What's In It For Them?

In this training course, Dr. Atkins turns the question, "Why should mental health researchers conduct school studies?" on its head, providing a thought-provoking presentation that focuses on why schools, and the NIMH, should support research in educational settings. He demonstrates a new way to think about 'resistance' to school-based research, advocates taking an ecological perspective when working with public schools, and emphasizes sustainability and the importance of embedded research.
