Dissemination and implementation of evidence-based treatments for children; parenting; child maltreatment; disruptive behavior disorders
I oversee the clinical training of advanced clinical psychology graduate students. I am particularly interested in clinical training focused on evidence-based treatments (EBTs) for children and families. I also teach a graduate course in Child Therapies.
My research focuses on two primary areas: the risk factors for and consequences of child maltreatment; and the dissemination and implementation of EBTs for families at risk for maltreatment. My overarching interest lies in research that informs our understanding of community-based behavioral health systems, in order to refine and enhance services available for high-risk families. My clinical interests include disruptive behavior disorders, childhood trauma, behavioral parent training, and mindfulness-based interventions such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
