Research Interests

The focus of my research is on social interactions, adjustment, and associated interventions. As a scientist-practitioner, I have published extensively in the area of social skills assessment and treatment and maintain interests in ADHD, cognitive behavioral therapies, and evidence-based approaches to assessment and treatment more generally.

My current interests center on social interactions and internalizing symptoms, such as depression and social anxiety. One line of ongoing investigation explores connections between social anxiety and youth aggression with the goal of identifying possible mediating and moderating influences. Another line examines social problem solving and its potential moderating impact on the stress-internalizing distress relationship.
