Summary

This paper represents the proceedings of a symposium concerned with public policy for children and families. The opening remarks by the chairperson address procedural questions of who should be involved in the formation of policies affecting children and families, when they should be involved and for what content. Specific presentations include (1) psychological perspectives of child advocacy, (2) considerations of children's needs in policy formation, from a practitioner's perspective and (3) the role of citizens and parents in policy formation and program implementation. The presentation of the first symposium discussant focuses on the need for an intermediary process for improving communication and understanding between public policy makers on the one hand and researchers, practitioners, children and families on the other. The second discussant focuses on ways in which psychologists as individuals and through professional organizations can affect public policy. Current legislation related to child advocacy is also discussed in this presentation. The closing reflections on the symposium by the chairperson summarize the issues discussed and present further ideas on the role of social scientists in policy formation. (BD)
