Tate Distinguished Professor Mark Fraser, Ph.D. made two presentations in Sweden this month.
On Feb. 7, he participated in the 2011 Stockholm Conference on Outcome Studies of Social, Behavioral and Educational Interventions, sponsored by the Swedish National Board of Health and Social Welfare. He spoke on “Introductions to Outcome Studies: Opportunities and Challenges” and presented his paper co-written by Professor Shenyang Guo and doctoral students Alan Ellis, Aaron Thompson, Traci Wike and Jilan Li. The conference included members of the scientific community and lead decision makers in local, regional and national agency levels, bringing together international experts and Swedish stakeholders.
On Feb. 10, he spoke on “Preventing Aggressive Behavior in Childhood: The Making Choices Program” at the School of Health, Care and Social Welfare at Mälardalen University. The UNC School of Social Work started a working relationship with Mälardalen last year.
This was Fraser’s second recent trip to Sweden. He spoke there in November.
