About Dr Tim Moore
Dr Tim Moore, a Senior Research Fellow at the Murdoch Children's Resesarch Institute, Royal Children's Hospital, Melbourne, will speak on 'Wicked Problems, Rotten Outcomes, and Clumsy Solutions: Supporting Children and Families in a Changing World'.
The circumstances in which families are raising young children have altered dramatically in the past 50 years. While many of these social changes have been beneficial, there have been some unintended side effects that have resulted in negative or 'rotten' outcomes for young people and families. Parenting has becoming more challenging, and those families with least resources are struggling to raise their children as they (and we) would wish.
Dr Moore's presentation will look at two major challenges that face us today: how to make sense of the social changes that have occurred and what we need to do to mitigate any adverse effects of these changes. In particular, we need to determine how we can better support young children and their families, particularly the most vulnerable.
