Informed clinical decision-making for treatment non-responders
Natalie’s research interests focus on evidence-based interventions for children with anxiety and disruptive behavior problems. She is particularly interested in informed decision-making for children who exhibit slower or fewer improvements over the course of an intervention. Additionally, she is interested in examining effective methods for utilizing parents as the agents of change in their children’s treatment.
