A Girl’s Chilhood: Psychological Development, Social Change,
and the Yale Child Study Center,

edited by Linda C. Mayes and Stephen Lassonde

 

In 1950, the Director of the Yale Child Study Center, Milton Senn, M.D., a psychoanalytically trained pediatrician, received a grant from the Commonwealth Fund to conduct the Yale Longitudinal Study of the Child. The study was ambitious in its scope and purpose: To learn about child development and to make predictions about personality development from data gleaned from pre-natal and pediatric visits, nursery-school observation, home visits and the psychoanalytic treatments that study subjects and their parents were offered when clinically indicated.

During the summer the staff will be updating the Roster. Aaron Chow will be asking for contact information updates and I will be doing the same for the various committees, their chairs and members. I will also be doing some research as to the various programs and who we can reach out to in order to gain a wider audience and attendance for these events. I have spoken to several committee chairs as to their thoughts on outreach and I would appreciate input from other members as to where I should look for this information. I expect the summer months to be unusually busy and many projects need my full attention and I want to be able to give all divisions and committee chairs extended attention now that I feel more knowledgeable about the Center and the Membership.
