My research aims to promote child well-being by preventing child maltreatment and improving the availability and quality of children’s mental health services. Areas of focus include 1) Caregiver risk for perpetration of child abuse and neglect; 2) Provision of mental health care in non-traditional settings (e.g., pediatric primary care, Child Advocacy Centers); 3) Workforce expansion and support for front-line providers; and 4) Implementation of evidence-based practices in rural areas.
