Two Generations. One Future: An Anthology from the Ascend Fellowship
Two Generations. One Future: An Anthology from the Ascend Fellowship, edited by Dr. Christopher King; Dr. P. Lindsay Chase-Lansdale; and Dr. Mario Small, offers insights into 2-Gen 2.0 approaches spearheaded by 20 leaders from across sectors, including the fields of human services, mental health, justice-involved families, and early childhood. It is divided into three sections: 1) Underpinnings of two-generation strategies; 2) Address and empowering families; 3) Innovative policies and programs; and 4) Evaluating and fostering two-generation strategies.
Led by the inaugural class of Aspen Institute Ascend Fellows, the Anthology offers the latest and most comprehensive picture of the two-generation field – and its challenges, successes, and lessons. Watch the Anthology release discussion here.
