The McLeod lab is engaged in research projects designed to develop and evaluate treatment integrity tools, training strategies, and interventions to help improve the quality of mental health care in community settings for youth and their families. A major theme in our research is developing and evaluating instruments designed to assess the core components of treatment integrity. Most of our current funded work focuses on developing pragmatic observer- and self-report treatment integrity instruments to support quality control efforts designed to promote the evaluation, implementation, and sustainability of evidence-based programs in community settings.
Our research projects provide opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students to learn about and participate in research focused upon improving the quality of care for youth and their families. As a mentor, I am dedicated to training graduate students to become the next generation of applied researchers focused upon improving the quality of care for youth and their families in community settings.
I plan to admit a student for the 2016-17 academic year.
