Parents of Teens and Young Adults, 13-20

As part of its Parenting Project, the Harvard School of Public Health, Center for Health Communication published the report Raising Teens: A Synthesis of Research and a Foundation for Action emphasizing those conclusions about the parenting of adolescents about which there is widespread agreement among researchers and practitioners. These central ideas, which cut across a range of disciplinary and cultural perspectives, are encapsulated in clear, short charts and summaries.

The Research Unit at the Centre for Adolescent Health aims to improve the health and well-being of young people by developing and maintaining a sound knowledge base that identifies the inter-relationships between health status and the constitutional, developmental and social contexts in which they occur, developing the capacity to promote adolescent health through research involving young people, their caregivers and those professionals who work with them, establishing collaborative links with national and international centers of excellence to further adolescent health-related knowledge, using evidenced-based research to inform and influence the development of public policies as they relate to young people, consolidating and extending research methodologies relevant to the developmental epidemiology of adolescence, developing and evaluating interventions which address adolescent health issues and improve health care services, and disseminating knowledge, theory and methodologies through publication, teaching, mentoring and staff development. The Centre for Adolescent Health is committed to parenting research and also to the development of parent education. The Centre promotes, conducts and evaluates parenting programs.
