Insights from behavioral economics, which combines findings from psychology and economics, suggest that an improved understanding of human behavior and decision-making could inform program design and improve outcomes.

This session will share early findings and lessons learned from BIAS’s work with child support agencies in Texas and Ohio. (conference program description)
