Research Area: Clinical Science

My primary research interest centers on parenting in at-risk populations. I am specifically interested in (a) methodological issues in the assessment of parenting skills (b) parent-child agreement about parents' behavior, and (c) determinants of parenting and the effects of parenting on children’s development, especially within psychiatric populations.
