Research Interests
My research interests are in the area of children at risk for the development of behavior problems. My goal is to generate a body of empirical work that will contribute to theory on the development of conduct problems. I am especially interested in examining the effectiveness of evidence based clinical interventions with Disruptive Behavior Disorders. My research lab offers students opportunities for independent studies focusing on interventions with children with Disruptive Behavior Disorders. Students working with me learn to score clinical measures, manage data sets, and receive training in working with clinical populations. I also supervise field experiences that are identified by students.
