Scholarship of teaching and learning; effective parenting strategies; dissemination of effective parenting strategies as primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention
I regularly teach undergraduate courses in Developmental Psychology, Psychology of Learning, and Clinical Psychology. I have also taught a variety of other courses including Introduction to Psychology, Psychology of Parenting, Psychopathology: Integrative Approaches, and a graduate course: Seminar on College Teaching.
My research interests stem from my broad interest in promoting optimal development and functioning through the application of psychological knowledge. This broad interest led to my research interests in promoting undergraduate student success; the prevention of externalizing behavior problems through parenting interventions; and the promotion of optimal development in children, adolescents, and their families.
