Culture, adversity, protective factors, externalizing disorders, psychosocial interventions
I am interested in the implementation and efficacy of psychosocial interventions for externalizing behavior in children and adolescents from at-risk and culturally diverse populations. I am also interested in the role of ecological factors, including culture and family dynamic, in the conceptualization, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of behavioral problems and mental health issues in children and adolescents.
