J. David Hawkins, Ph.D.
Richard F. Catalano, Ph.D.
For over 25 years, Dr. Hawkins and Dr. Catalano, professors of social work at the University of Washington and directors of the Social Development Research Group, have been at the forefront of prevention science theory and application. Internationally known for their research in positive youth development and crime, violence, and substance abuse prevention, they founded Developmental Research & Programs, Inc., in 1984 to translate research findings into programs and services for promoting healthy development among young people and families.
In 2000, Hawkins and Catalano joined with Channing Bete Company to develop and deliver research-based, results-oriented programs and tools to help young people make healthy choices and fulfill their potential.
