Project Support Program Makes Its Way to Sweden

Dedman College News Originally Posted: April 23, 2019 Contact: Renee McDonald, rmcdonald@smu.edu SMU psychologists champion critical family intervention program Project Support, an intervention program designed to help improve the parent-child relationship and mental health outcomes for children in families in which intimate partner violence has occurred, is being implemented through social services agencies across Sweden. After a multi-year study, the National Swedish Health Technology Assessment in 2018 designated Project Support, originally developed by SMU Department of Psychology professors Renee McDonald and Ernest Jouriles, as one of two programs with a sufficient evidence base for helping children in domestically violent families (press release: https://www.sbu.se/280). “Project Support has been demonstrated to ameliorate child adjustment problems and improve family functioning,” says Dr. McDonald. “The program has been evaluated in [...]

New DCII on Machine Learning lead by Math Faculty

SMU Interdisciplinary Institute Cluster on Machine Learning and Control Theory Event Date: April 19 Time: 3:30pm Organizers: Minh-Binh Tran, Alejandro Aceves, Chul Moon Brief Description: Multilayer neural networks have been shown to be the most powerful models in machine learning. However, the fundamental reasons for this success remains not well understood and for that it will require mathematical tools and expertise. One of the most important mathematical tools that can be used to study neural networks is Control/Mean Field theory that deals with the behavior of dynamical systems with inputs, and how their behavior is modified by feedback. By this cluster, we would like to create a forum for faculties and researchers at regional universities and companies working on this important topic. READ MORE

Jeffrey Engel, Center for Presidential History, all the presidents’ vetoes

Backstory Originally Posted: April 5, 2019 To veto or not to veto? That was the question President George Washington wrestled with on this day in 1792. In honor of that decision, and the precedent it set for subsequent leaders, this week BackStory looks at presidential vetoes through two periods in American history. First, Joanne unpacks Washington’s complicated feelings about his first – and only – veto. Then, Brian speaks with historian Jeffrey Engel about how President Trump’s recent use of the veto pen fits into the big picture of presidents saying ‘thanks, but no thanks.’ LISTEN
