Tag is producing a landmark book that brings together the pioneering research undertaken and commissioned by Tag Institute for Social Development, soon to be published by Springer Publishing. The research integrates insights from Jewish texts and practices with the methods and concepts of the social sciences to create interventions that promote the well-being of children, adults, families, communities, and society.
Ours is a book of applied research. Many books present ideas that have emerged in think tanks and universities, but have not shown that these ideas can bring about positive change in the lives of people and their communities. Other books present stories of social or humanitarian activities, but these activities are not informed by research. Our books combines the best of both: Chapters describe how humanitarian activities and psychological-educational interventions benefit when they are evidence-based and rigorously evaluated.
Key Features of the Book
