SIROW staff Alison Greene, Katie Haverly, and Sally Stevens traveled to Baltimore, MD for the annual Society for Research on Adolescence Conference (SRA) on March 30, 2016. Established in the winter of 1984, the Society for Research on Adolescence (SRA) is a rapidly growing, dynamic society focused on the theoretical, empirical, and policy research issues of adolescence. Through its biennial meetings and publishing efforts, SRA promotes the dissemination of research on adolescents and serves as a network and forum for its members. SRA also publishes the Journal of Research on Adolescence.
Findings were shared from three different SIROW projects in a panel entitled Targeted Approaches to Addressing Negative Consequences of Victimization among Adolescents. Alison Greene shared information about the Las Rosas project in a presentation entitled Impact of a system of care approach to integrating sexuality education and substance abuse treatment with adolescent girls, Katie shared findings from the JDCRF Cross-Site Evaluation in a presentation entitled Addressing Gender-based Differences in Victimization and Substance Use among Justice-Involved Youth, and Sally shared findings from the iTEAM and PRISM projects in a presentation entitled Examining Outcomes of an Evolving, Trauma-Responsive System of Care for LGBTQSA Youth.
