Until recently, fathers were rarely recognized by program developers or policymakers as positive resources for reducing risks and strengthening protective factors for children at risk of abuse and neglect. Supporting Father Involvement is the first family-focused father involvement program designed specifically for low-income families and evaluated with a randomized clinical trial design. In 2006 Dr. Kline Pruett accepted an endowed Chair at Smith College. Her research continues as the Maconda Brown O'Connor Professor at Smith's School for Social Work. Previously, Dr. Kline Pruett was Associate Professor in the Law and Psychiatry Division at the Yale University School of Medicine and the Yale Child Study Center. She is best known for the development, implementation, and evaluation of preventive interventions in schools and courts. Her writings include numerous scholarly articles, chapters, and a co-authored book, Your Divorce Advisor: An Attorney and Psychologist Lead You Through the Legal and Emotional Landscape of Divorce (2001 by Simon and Schuster). Dr. Kline Pruett’s research interests revolve around family issues specific to family and juvenile law. The unifying theme across the research is the promotion of healthy family development during life transitions, particularly those transitions related to adverse events or circumstances. Emily M.
