Board on Children, Youth, and Families

The Board on Children, Youth, and Families (BCYF) was created in 1993 under the joint aegis of the Institute of Medicine (IOM) and the National Research Council (NRC) and serves as the focal point for authoritative analysis of child and family issues relevant to scientific research and policy decisions. The Board brings a developmental and evidence-based perspective to bear on the formation of policies and programs for children, youth, and families, drawing upon the collective knowledge and analytic tools of the behavioral, biological, health, and social sciences. The Board also fosters the recognition that children, adolescents, and families constitute unique populations whose important differences are often not addressed in research studies, public policy and program development discussions, or the organization and financing of health and human services.

The Board is a joint collaboration between NRC and IOM, the only such joint structure that combines the behavioral, social, and health sciences within The National Academies complex. BCYF activities are inherently interdisciplinary and frequently involve collaboration with other major NRC and IOM divisions. From 1997 to 2005, adolescent concerns were addressed initially through a separate Forum on Adolescence, followed by a separate standing Committee on Adolescent Health and Development (CAHD). In March 2005, CAHD was dissolved and its portfolio of activities was integrated into the BCYF agenda.

BCYF engages in work that is both responsive and anticipatory: responsive to government’s and other stakeholders’ priority interests; and

anticipatory of scientific discoveries that pose long-term opportunities and challenges in the lives of children, youth, and families. The Board convenes distinguished research scientists, experienced service providers, policy analysts, and community leaders to examine the implications of new research findings and scientific theories in addressing significant issues in health, education, and social policy that affect the well-being of children, youth, and families.

Through studies, reports, workshops, websites, and other activities, the Board informs public and private deliberations about the most critical issues facing communities, states, and our Nation: child and adolescent health and health care services; family support, child care, and early child development; biological and behavioral changes among children and youth; parental health, caregiving, and child health; school engagement and youth development; child abuse, family violence, and child welfare; and the prevention of underage drinking, teen motor vehicle crashes, and other risky and dangerous behaviors. Most of these activities are developed through guidance from separate ad hoc committees appointed to bring relevant expertise to the task at hand. These activities are developed with an emphasis on research findings, evidence-based analysis, consideration of systemic and environmental factors, and attention to strategic planning that can integrate multiple interests.

Scholars--and adults in general--have pondered for centuries the mysterious processes that influence the ways in which children gradually become adults. The development of professional organizations and journals devoted to adolescence, as well as increasing appreciation in academia and the world of policy for the importance of this phase of life, have helped this field catch up with the pace of research on other stages of human development particularly infancy and early childhood.

The development of a comprehensive review of research on adolescence depends in large part on the perceived need for such a synthesis and the extent to which different research fields as well as policy and practice would benefit from such an effort. To address these issues, the National Research Council and the Institute of Medicine, through the Board on Children, Youth, and Families, held a two-day workshop in September 2005. The workshop was designed as an opportunity for an interdisciplinary group to explore the different strands of research that contribute to understanding adolescence. In the brief time available, the group was not asked to address the entire range of issues related to adolescent health and development, but rather to provide an initial explanation of issues that a longer term study might address.

A Study of Interactions summarizes the major themes discussed at the workshop. It begins with an overview of what adolescence is and current views of the processes that shape development in the second decade of life. It explores the transdisciplinary research issues already presented in this field, as well as issues raised in discussions of goals for the field's future. A closing section describes the presenters' thoughts on the feasibility of launching an in depth contextual study that could more firmly establish connections among the many fields of study concerned with adolescence.
