Lessons from the Field

Children, Youth & Family Consortium hosts a theme-based seminar series called Lessons from the Field. The purpose of this series is to:

  • Engage community and University clinicians, community leaders, researchers, and instructors in examining specific topics related to children’s mental health.
  • Close the research-practice gap by developing a strong circular pattern of communication where theory and research inform practice that in turn informs theory and research.

Our Most Recent Lessons from the Field — Children in Common

For presentations materials and video from our recent Lessons from the Field on coparenting, click here.

The series fits our goal to strengthen children’s mental health practice and policy by promoting use of evidence. Events are planned by a diverse group of community and University representatives and attended by clinicians, researchers, parents, and others locally and throughout Minnesota via video stream and interactive television.
