Tune in for a great, two-part Freakonomics podcast featuring BAM founder Tony DiVittorio. The podcast references a University of Chicago Crime Lab working paper released this summer through the National Bureau of Economic Research and includes additional evidence about the effectiveness of cognitive behavioral therapy approaches and preliminary findings about how these interventions work.  By reducing automaticity—one of several drivers of BAM’s success—BAM helps youth make better decisions in high-stakes situations.
