Society for Research in Child Development

Society for Research in Child Development

The Society for Research in Child Development (SRCD) was founded in 1933 to “stimulate and support research, to encourage cooperation among individuals engaged in the scientific study of child development, and to encourage applications of research findings”. Since then, SRCD has remained at the forefront of developmental science, providing leadership for the field amid changing scientific and social contexts. Throughout the decades, the Society has maintained its commitment to the developing child as the primary focus of scientific inquiry and to the use of that science to improve child, family, and community well-being across diverse contexts.

SRCD faces a rapidly changing environment. Technological advances, the growth of interdisciplinary research in developmental science, and increased opportunities for international collaboration open promising new avenues for scientific discovery and application. Capitalizing on these opportunities to forge an integrative developmental science, however, will require bridging disciplinary silos and national borders, and will require increased diversity in research foci and in the scientific work force. Changes in funding structures, university systems, and research processes will likewise require adaptation and innovation if the research is to remain strong and vibrant. To enable SRCD to address unfolding challenges and to take advantage of emerging opportunities for developmental science and its application, SRCD initiated a strategic planning process to identify future Society directions.

Implicit Association Test (Project Implicit)

project implcitProject Implicit is a group of assessments in which a person is given choices to compare from about a person’s race, sex, identity, religious or other possible biases.  This social psychology assessment basically tries to combine a mental strength of a person’s thoughts with pictures they may see of a person who may fit that profile in order to establish how much of a bias exists.  For instance; with the sex test, you would be expected to see pictures of females and males, for race, one race versus another or more.

While taking this group of implicit association tests–you can take 15 different ones at the beginning–you may feel that your bias is not “correct.”  That is okay!  Please remember that this is just a tool to use to see what kind of possible biases you may have.  If anything else, it is a nice assessment just to try to see what comes up when you try it and find.
