TRANSFORM- Dante Cicchetti

Dante Cicchetti, Ph.D.
McKnight Presidential Chair, William Harris Professor, Institute of Child Development
University of Minnesota
Through his leadership in research, Dr. Cicchetti has encouraged the field of developmental psychopathology to bridge separations across disciplines and to integrate knowledge bases drawn from normative and atypical development. His work in the area of the causes and consequences of child maltreatment and violence has transformed social policy and provided information on resilience and maladaptation for high-risk children. Through Development and Psychopathology, the journal he founded and edits, he has fostered the publication of stellar empirical research that has applications for normal and atypical populations.
