Framing the Developmental Science of Adolescence

Framing the Developmental Science of Adolescence

The Center on the Developing Adolescent is partnering with the FrameWorks Institute to synthesize and facilitate the translation of the developmental science of adolescence. This work is being supported by technical assistance from Harvard College’s Center on the Developing Child. The Core Story of Early Childhood Development that emerged through the long-term and on-going collaboration between the Center on the Developing Child and the FrameWorks Institute demonstrates the power of a shared set of reframing tools for expanding public understanding of complex social and scientific issues. FrameWorks and the Center on the Developing Child are eager to share their experience with collaboration, reframing research, and leadership engagement to the field of adolescent development. Borrowing from lessons learned in the development of the Core Story of Early Childhood Development, the Center on the Developing Adolescent will expand their communications capacity and translate the lessons learned to facilitate the translation of the developmental science of adolescence.
