My orientation toward psychology is grounded in contextual behavioral science and
my research is broadly focused on school mental health. I aim to understand wellbeing
using basic psychological principles and to advance assessment and intervention practices
in schools that are squarely grounded in these principles. Current research projects
1 Development and validation of brief self-report behavior rating scales that are
useful for informing mental health services in schools. This includes measures of
student wellbeing, the mental health problems that interfere with wellbeing, and the
core behavioral processes underlying both mental health problems and wellbeing.
2 Development and validation of interventions that are useful for reducing mental
health problems and promoting wellbeing in schools. This includes classwide, group-based,
and individualized treatments derived from the principles and strategies of acceptance
and commitment therapy (ACT) and basic behavioral therapies.
3 Meta-analysis of emerging intervention approaches that target mental health outcomes
in schools. This includes evaluations of the treatment effects of mindfulness, gratitude,
yoga, motivational interviewing, and third-wave behavioral therapies.
