Improving supports in community settings for at-risk youth
Rachel is a first-year doctoral student in the Clinical Science Ph.D. program at FIU working with Dr. Stacy Frazier. She is largely interested in improving outcomes for at-risk children who may have difficulty accessing adequate supports and resources. She is interested in doing this by working with community partners to build supports directly into children's natural environments, with a focus on the dissemination and implementation process of building evidence-based practices into community settings in a feasible, sustainable, and generalizable way.
