The Center for Child and Family Well-Being (CCFW), together with the Foundation for Early Learning, hosted the 2nd Research to Real World Forum, in which researchers, practitioners, policy advocates, and philanthropy representatives discussed bringing research findings to application in a more effective and efficient way. The goal of these meetings is to create a forum and process where researchers, practitioners and policy makers come together to share and learn from each other. Often it takes 10 years for research to be put into practice or to influence policy. CCFW intends to help shorten this timeline. The meeting focused on building strong attachment relationships with caregivers of infants in the welfare system to provide protective relationships for them.
