Gender equality is a moral and a business imperative. But unconscious bias holds us back and de-biasing minds has proven to be difficult and expensive. Behavioral design offers a new solution. Iris Bohnet shows that by de-biasing organizations instead of individuals, we can make smart changes that have big impacts—often at low cost and high speed.

Social marketing takes key marketing principles and applies them to campaigns and efforts to influence social action. In Social Marketing to Protect the Environment, the focus turns to the environment, and how social marketing can be successful to change environmental behaviour. The text begins with a definition of the Social Marketing Model and includes a discussion of various tools that can be used to develop social marketing strategies. It then moves into sections on Residential-Related Behaviours and Commercial-Related Behaviours. These sections follow a consistent format and: - Describe a variety of environmental issues - Give examples of the numerous changes in behaviours and/or practices that would contribute to reducing the problem - Provide mini-cases that illustrate the successful use of social marketing principles along with tools to influence this behaviour in similar situations - Review what worked and what could have been improved. A final section provides future directions and recommendations.

Seit den 1990er Jahren werden im Zuge des Paradigmenwechsels von der Input- zur Outputsteuerung Reformen im Schul- und Bildungsbereich in Deutschland aus der Perspektive der Evidenzbasierung diskutiert. So soll gewährleistet werden, dass bildungsbezogene Reformen auf der Basis empirischer Daten - und nicht auf Grund ideologischer oder politischer Ansichten - erfolgen. Um die dafür erforderlichen Daten zu generieren, hat die Bildungsforschung seit dem Paradigmenwechsel eine Expansion erlebt und Bildungsforschung, Bildungspolitik und Bildungsadministration nähern sich einander an. Inwiefern diese Entwicklungen rückblickend auf fast 30 Jahre der evidenzbasierten Steuerung tatsächlich zu Verbesserungen im Bildungswesen beitragen und wie sich der Dialog und die Zusammenarbeit zwischen den Akteuren ausgestaltet, wurde im Rahmen der Herbsttagung 2016 der Kommission Bildungsplanung, Bildungsorganisation und Bildungsrecht (KBBB) in der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Erziehungswissenschaft thematisiert.

Screening for disease has become a widely accepted concept in health care. "Screening in Disease Prevention" takes a critical look at the practice of screening throughout the various stages of life. The book highlights three current challenges: the increasing consumer, media and commercial focus on health in general and screening in particular; providing accurate and understandable information; and tackling the continuing variation in the uptake of screening between different areas of the country and different socio-economic groups. "Screening in Disease Prevention" is important reading for public health professionals, particularly those involved in screening programmes. Policy makers and shapers, medical researchers, pressure groups and support organisations for people with screenable conditions will also find it a valuable reference.

Reducing the Criminal Activities of Offenders and Deliquents

What Works in Corrections, first published in 2006, examines the impact of correctional interventions, management policies, treatment and rehabilitation programs on the recidivism of offenders and delinquents. The book reviews different strategies for reducing recidivism and describes how the evidence for effectiveness is assessed. Thousands of studies were examined in order to identify those of sufficient scientific rigor to enable conclusions to be drawn about the impact of various interventions, policies and programs on recidivism. Systematic reviews and meta-analyses were performed to further examine these results. This book assesses the relative effectiveness of rehabilitation programs (e.g., education, life skills, employment, cognitive behavioral), treatment for different types of offenders (e.g. sex offenders, batterers, juveniles), management and treatment of drug-involved offenders (e.g., drug courts, therapeutic communities, outpatient drug treatment) and punishment, control and surveillance interventions (boot camps, intensive supervision, electronic monitoring). Through her extensive research, MacKenzie illustrates which of these programs are most effective and why.
