My research has focused on understanding processes that promote resilience for children in high stress situations and translating that knowledge into experimental programs that promote resilience. I have conducted randomized trials and long-term follow-ups of resilience promotion programs that involve promoting effective parenting for children of divorce and for parentally bereaved children.
I want to see the widespread implementation of effective parenting programs in order to promote the healthy development of children.
