I am a professor of Human Development and Family Studies at Colorado State University and the Director of the Colorado State University Prevention Research Center. I am trained as a Child Clinical Psychologist and my research is in the area of Prevention Science. My research has focused on developing and evaluating family-based interventions to promote adolescent competence and prevention problem behaviors. Most recently, I have adapted an evidence-based family-strengthening intervention by infusing mindfulness practices for parents and youth into the curriculum. My team is evaluating the results of that trial and exploring opportunities to further test its effectiveness.
