Dr. Alampay discusses how child maltreatment, and by implication parenting, are global public health issues.
Dr. Liane Peña Alampay is Professor of Psychology at the Ateneo de Manila University. She is a developmental psychologist whose research focuses on parenting and its association with child and adolescent development, cultural contexts of family relationships, and interventions for children and families at risk. She is the Principal Investigator of Parenting for Lifelong Health in the Philippines, a UNICEF and WHO global initiative that delivers and tests evidence-based parenting interventions to prevent child maltreatment among low-income families. Dr Alampay is also co-Principal Investigator in the Parenting Across Cultures project, a longitudinal study across nine countries that investigates how familial, biological, and cultural processes shape development from childhood to young adulthood. Her research and policy work has contributed to the development and implementation of national child protection policies.
