Our group is engaged in research designed to promote the accessibility and effectiveness of interventions for youth with social, emotional, and behavioral problems delivered in community settings. Major themes in our research include distilling practice elements from the research literature, using practice elements to develop efficient interventions for community settings, and developing tools and training strategies to support the implementation of evidence-based interventions. Our current funded work focuses on effectiveness trials in mental health and school settings, the development of pragmatic self-report treatment integrity instruments to promote the evaluation, implementation, and sustainment of evidence-based interventions in community settings, and predictors of sustainment in school 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 2022-23 academic year.Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Mailing address: Department of Psychology 806 West Franklin Street PO Box 842018 Richmond, Virginia 23284-2018
