“There is No Sound Scientific Evidence to Support Anti-Smacking Bans”

ROBERT E. LARZELERE PhD

Dr Bob Larzelere is in the country! Associate Professor of Psychology Dept. Human Development & Family Science – Oklahoma State University

Dr Larzelere has been one of the world’s foremost experts on child correction for the past 30 years – including:
• One of three social scientific expert witnesses on the side of successfully defending a similar section to NZ’s s59 of Canada’s Criminal Code.
(The social scientific expert witnesses on the other side included Joan Durrant. Durrant has been painted as the authority on smacking bans in NZ yet was ignored in her own country!)
• Member of Task Force on Corporal Punishment – American Psychological Association.
• One of 7 experts invited to present at 1996 Scientific Consensus Conference on the Short- and Long-Term Consequences of Corporal Punishment – co-sponsored by American Academy of Pediatrics.
