What is MPSI?

The Mis­souri Pre­ven­tion Sci­ence Insti­tute (MPSI) is a mul­ti-dis­ci­pli­nary insti­tute focused on under­stand­ing human devel­op­ment; pre­vent­ing social, behav­ioral, and emo­tion­al prob­lems; and design­ing, eval­u­at­ing, and imple­ment­ing effec­tive interventions.

MPSI brings com­mu­ni­ty mem­bers and researchers togeth­er to help schools and fam­i­lies apply tech­niques that pro­mote social and aca­d­e­m­ic suc­cess. Through com­mu­ni­ty out­reach, the institute’s staff pro­vides par­ent train­ing and teacher con­sul­ta­tion ser­vices as well as con­duct­ing ground­break­ing research in the field of pre­ven­tion science.
