Title: Drawing Causal Conclusions When Experiments are Impossible: The Case of Physical Punishment with Elizabeth Gershoff, PhD
UT Austin

Elizabeth Gershoff's research focuses on how parental and school discipline affect child and youth development and how parent education and early education programs can improve the lives of at risk children. She is an internationally recognized expert on the effects of corporal punishment on children. Dr. Gershoff also studies how and for whom early intervention programs, such as the federal Head Start program, have the strongest impacts. She currently serves as the Director of the NSF-funded Interdisciplinary Collaborative on Development in Context. She was previously an associate professor of social work at the University of Michigan and a research scientist at the National Center for Children in Poverty at Columbia University.
