Joyce Javier, MD, MPH, was recently featured on The Incredible Years Blog. Javier has attended numerous Incredible Years® group leader trainings and over the past six years she has been conducting research in Los Angeles faith-based settings with the Filipino community. Javier, a Public Health Scientist and pediatrician, has implemented the Incredible Years® programs in order to help educate the community and prevent behavioral problems in young children. The results are promising, and parents have reported significant improvement in stress levels as well as reduced behavior problems with their children.
