The focus of my research program is to examine parent and family factors that affect child behavior. Studies involve implementation of empirically supported behavior management strategies with attention to issues of service access and utilization in rural communities, as well as adaptations for effective use in medical settings. 

Participating students will be involved in study design, literature reviews, and data collection, with opportunities to participate in submitting findings for conference presentations and publications in scientific journals.
