Beyond the Jargon

Understanding the Impacts of Child Abuse and Trauma

An enormous amount of time, money, effort, and good intentions goes into scientific research. But all too often the results aren’t shared – or effectively communicated – with those beyond the ivory tower of academia. The goal of Beyond the Jargon is to make academic research more accessible to a wider audience. Host Karen Albright engages listeners in a series of conversations designed to translate scientific research and to explore from a data-driven perspective the impacts of child abuse on our psychological, family, health care, criminal justice, and social systems.
