Biography
P. Lindsay Chase-Lansdale is Professor of Human Development and Social Policy at the School of Education and Social Policy and Faculty Fellow in the Institute for Policy Research (IPR), Northwestern University. Chase-Lansdale is an expert on the interface between research and social policy for children and families, a former American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Congressional Science Fellow, and the first developmental psychologist to be tenured in a public policy school in the United States. She was the founding director of the NICHD-funded center, Cells to Society (C2S): The Center on Social Disparities and Health at IPR.

She specializes in multidisciplinary research on social issues and how they affect families and the development of children, youth, and adults. Much of her work addresses family strengths that lead to children's positive social and educational outcomes in the context of family economic hardship. Specific topics include two-generation educational interventions for young parents and their children, early childhood education, postsecondary education and workforce training, immigration, welfare reform, maternal employment, marriage and cohabitation, and parent-child relationships.

Chase-Lansdale is a fellow in the American Psychological Association and the Association for Psychological Science. She is the recipient of the Society for Research on Adolescence (SRA) Social Policy Award as well as the Society for Research in Child Development (SRCD) Award for Distinguished Contributions to Public Policy for Children. She has recently been awarded the Ascend Fellowship of the Aspen Institute, a program designed to bring innovative leaders together to take a two-generation approach in policy, practice, and research toward moving parents and children beyond poverty into educational success and economic security. She chairs the Visiting Committee of the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and she serves on the National Advisory Committee of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health & Society Scholars Program. Chase-Lansdale received her Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology from the University of Michigan in 1981.

Courses
HDSP 402 Child Development Child development and the well-being of families have not been in the public policy spotlight in the new millennium as much as one would hope. The policy question that I care about the most -- How can our society improve the lives of children and families? – is not on center stage. Contemporary issues such as the economic crisis, the mid-term elections, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, homeland security, and the budget deficit have been far more pressing. But there is greater potential than ever before for child development research to produce new knowledge that can be useful to policy makers at all levels of government, in addition to community and civic leaders, service and health care providers, educators, parents, and the public. Research and policy aimed at the goal of improving children’s lives require an in-depth understanding of how and why children develop the way they do. This course is designed to provide an intensive overview of the science of child development, with an emphasis on young children. A broad range of theoretical perspectives from a variety of fields will be emphasized. Students will come away with an understanding of the key factors in healthy child development, defined to include socioemotional, cognitive, and physical well-being. In addition, we will apply the scientific knowledge of child development to several major policy and programmatic issues, such as early childhood education, antipoverty programs, marriage promotion, and health disparities. This course also highlights the role of context: family, peers, child care, school, employment, neighborhood, and policy environments. Ethical considerations as well as measurement (i.e., the tools of the science) will be stressed. In addition, a multidisciplinary perspective is a central theme.
