Research Interests

The focus of my research is on social interactions, adjustment, and associated interventions. As a scientist-practitioner, I have published extensively on 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 emphasis is social problem solving (SPS) and internalizing distress, such as depression and social anxiety. Recent studies include investigations of common and distinct pathways connecting SPS, self-regulation, emotion regulation, and depression; the incremental utility of SPS self-monitoring in the prediction of depression and anxiety; and the short-term longitudinal interrelations of stress, SPS, and gastrointestinal distress.
