Dr. Cybele Raver
Associate Professor of Applied Psychology, School of Education, NYU Steinhardt
Topic: Placing Children's Self-Regulation in the Context of Classroom-based Intervention

C. Cybele Raver directs NYU's Institute of Human Development and Social Change. Her research focuses on young children and families facing economic hardship. She examines the mechanisms that support children's positive outcomes in the policy contexts of welfare reform and early intervention. Raver and her research team currently conduct the Chicago School Readiness Project (CSRP), a federally-funded RCT intervention. The Chicago School Readiness Project tests the impact of comprehensive teacher training and mental health consultation services on Head Start classroom processes, on young children's self-regulation, and on their academic achievement later on in kindergarten and first grade. Before joining the faculty of the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, Raver held faculty positions at University of Chicago's Harris School of Public Policy Studies and at Cornell University's Department of Human Development. Raver earned her Ph.D. in developmental psychology from Yale University.
