About The Nurture Effect:
The Nurture Effect: How the Science of Human Behavior Can Improve Our Lives and Our World is a fascinating look at the evolution of behavioral science, the revolutionary way it’s changing the way we live, and how nurturing environments can increase people’s wellbeing in virtually every aspect of our society, from early childhood education to corporate practices. What if there were a way to prevent criminal behavior, mental illness, drug abuse, poverty, and violence? The Nurture Effect offers evidence-based interventions that can prevent many of the psychological and behavioral problems that plague our society. Dr. Biglan illustrates how his findings lay the framework for a model of societal change that has the potential to reverberate through all environments within society.
