PSP Guest Talk: Dr. Brittany Cooper

April 9 @ 11:30 am 12:30 pm

Title: Promoting a Healthy and Equitable Society through Research-Policy-Practice Partnerships:  New Horizons in Prevention Science.

Abstract: As President of the national Society for Prevention Research, Dr. Cooper will speak to the current state of the prevention science field and her predictions for the field over the next decade.

Bio: Dr. Brittany Cooper’s program of research focuses on both the generation of basic prevention research knowledge and the translation of this knowledge for effective prevention practice and policy aimed at improving the mental, emotional and behavioral health of children, families, and communities. She examines how risk and protective factors at multiple ecological levels, including family, peer, school, and community, interact to predict children’s developmental outcomes. This basic research forms the basis for the development of effective family and school-based prevention programs aimed at promoting healthy development. Cooper received her Ph.D. from Pennsylvania State University in 2009, and has been the president of the Society for Prevention Research since June 2023.
