A child and family services’ guide to the Longitudinal Study of Australian Children (LSAC) | AIFS
July 28 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pmFree
The Longitudinal Study of Australian Children (LSAC) is a major study following the development of 10,000 young people and their families. It is conducted in partnership between the Department of Social Services and the Australian Institute of Family Studies.
The study began in 2004 with a representative sample of infants (0–1-year-olds) and children (4–5-year-olds) from urban and rural areas across all Australian states and territories. For almost twenty-years, researchers have followed study participants collecting data from their early years, childhood and adolescence. LSAC has a multi-disciplinary base and examines a broad range of research questions about development and wellbeing over the life course with a particular focus on identifying opportunities for early intervention and prevention strategies.
This webinar is recommended for child and family service program managers and practitioners who work with children, young people and families in a range of settings. The content may be of particular interest to those working in areas relating to child and adolescent development, with carers and parents, or in areas related to mental health and wellness.
