We do research that advances evidence-based mental health services in schools.

We are broadly interested in developing and validating school-based assessment and intervention practices with youth and caregivers. Our current lines of research include:
  1. 1.
    Developing and validating brief rating scales for measuring mental health constructs.
  2. 2.
    Evaluating the effects of mindfulness-based interventions (MBIs) in schools.
  3. 3.
    Systematically reviewing and meta-analyzing the effects of cognitive-behavioral treatment approaches with youth and caregivers that include a strong mindfulness component, i.e., MBI, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT).
