Research Summary

My research focuses on using behaviorally-based principles and practices to solve problems of childhood. As a child clinical psychologist, I am interested in the treatment of psychological disorders of childhood (e.g., Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Sleep Disorders, Enuresis/Encopresis) as well as effective solutions to more common problems of childhood (e.g., noncompliance, bedtime problems, and difficulty with toilet training). Many of the therapeutic interventions I use rely on parents implementing specific behavioral interventions in the home. Therefore, I am also interested in how to best train parents and factors that affect treatment adherence.

Research Interests

  • Treatment of common childhood behavior problems
  • Treatment of clinically significant problems of childhood
  • Parent training (e.g., Parent-Child Interaction Therapy)
  • Behavior therapy/ applied behavior analysis
