Research Interests
My research interests focus on how to: 1) prevent the development of emotional or behavioral problems in young children who have been exposed to difficult situations such as abuse/neglect, foster/kinship care, family violence, children with parents who abuse drugs/alcohol and children with parents involved with the criminal justice system. I am also interested in how treatment services work for parents and children who have experienced those difficult circumstances.
