    schema:reviewBody """I love this book! The editors have put together a practical and lively account of how research can be applied to policy and practice. Besides providing much-needed advice on conecting applied research, authors provide narratives of their own journeys in the study of and intervention with children and youth."--Jeanne Brooks-Gunn, Columbia University, USA" ""This book is a much needed guide to doing applied research on human development. It provides excellent personal examples of how basic researchers have expanded into applied areas and excellent advice on how to conduct the very best applied research."--Jacque Eccles, University of Michigan, USA" ""The content ... is ... exactly [what] our graduate students need and want ... The [book is] ... very relevant, given the current interest of funding agencies on translational research and the growth of graduate programs in applied developmental science ... a good resource for young researchers ... [and] ... students ... developing their ideas for their masters theses ... I would purchase this book myself and recommend it to colleagues and students in our applied developmental psychology ... program ... it promises to make a significant contribution to the field."--Linda Baker, University of Maryland, USA" ""Given the increasing encouragement towards applied, translational science, a book of this type that could serve both a graduate community and basic researchers ... would be welcome ... I can see this text being used in several research design or substantive research courses ... A strength of this book is the solid treatment of how and why particular research techniques and methods may (or must) be modified in applied settings."--Scott M. Hofer, University of Victoria, Canada" ""The book ... addresses an important issue in the field, how to translate scientific findings into practical applications by focusing on the skills and experiences of applied researchers ... The quality of the scholars contributing to the ... volume is excelent ... I like the case studies and inclusion of practical information."--Natasha J. Cabrera, University of Maryland, USA" "Developed for an NIH training institute, this volume is organized around the most frequently asked questions by researchers starting their careers in applied research in child and adolescent development. With contributions from the leading scholars in the field, actual research experiences highlight the challenges one faces in conducting such research. The techniques and theoretical frameworks most suitable for guiding the applied research process are reviewed along with related ethical and cultural considerations. Each chapter features the authors' introduction to their own careers in applied research. Also included are practical tips, case studies, and sidebars featuring frequently asked questions." "The book opens with the most frequently asked questions, tips on getting started in an applied research career, and an overview of and theoretical framework for generating applied developmental research ideas. Section 2 focuses on research designs including the most frequently used methodological and measurement techniques and tips on how to modify them to applied settings. Ethical challenges and cultural issues in working with special populations are also addressed. Section 3 focuses on conducting applied research in school, community, and clinical settings with an emphasis on the challenges encountered when conducting actual research as opposed to the more controlled settings taught in a classroom. Guidelines for protecting the populations involved in the study and strategies for recruiting and retaining participants are also addressed. The book concludes with strategies for disseminating research findings so as to have the greatest impact on policy and practice, for publishing research, and for securing funding." "Intended as a practical guide, this book is ideal for those just starting their careers in applied research, for students preparing their dissertations, and for the faculty who prepare these students. The book's accessible approach also appeals to researchers in the behavioral, social, and health sciences, education, and those in government and industry."--Jacket." ;
