Research Description:

The goal of research conducted in this lab is to understand how best to develop effective, engaging, and efficient prevention, intervention, and service delivery models for youth at high-risk for and those affected with Disruptive Behavior Disorders (i.e., Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Oppositional-Defiant Disorder, and/or Conduct Disorder) and related conditions. An important focus is on children that are considered at heightened risk for poor outcomes owing to the presence of multiple contextual, familial, and inter/intrapersonal risk factors.
