Research Interests:

The role of emotion regulation, coping strategies, and gender in the development and maintenance of internalizing disorders, including depression, anxiety, and posttraumatic stress disorder.

Development of intervention and prevention programs for girls and women that can be administered through community settings, such as primary care and schools.

Research Summary:

My research focuses on identifying risk and resiliency factors associated with psychopathology among girls and women.

I have collaborated on a number of federally-funded grants (e.g., Centers for Disease Control, National Institute of Justice, National Institute of Mental Health) examining factors associated with the development, maintenance, and treatment of women’s mental health issues following traumatic events.

In addition, I have been involved with the development of low-cost, accessible psychotherapies for underserved women administered through community settings, such as primary care.

My recent research involves developing and evaluating the Girls in Transition Program (GT), a school-based depression prevention program for early adolescent girls. GT represents an adaptation of the Penn Resiliency Program (PRP), a world-renowned and -researched cognitive-behavioral prevention program for children and adolescence.
