Congratulations to Dick Reppucci: 2018 Recipient of the APA Award for Distinguished Contributions to Research in Public Policy

For over forty years, Nicholas “Dick” Reppucci has been deeply committed to the well-being of our communities through the formulation of public policy based on social science rather than intuition.  This commitment has had a remarkable impact on policy changes for children and families spanning a wide-range of topics including, but not limited to, the evaluation of child abuse prevention programs, adolescent female offending, adolescent culpability, and the interrogation of juvenile suspects.  His scholarly achievements and tireless dissemination efforts have fundamentally shaped the discourse on how our public policies can best serve our children, families, and their communities.”
