Research Interests

Primary area of expertise: development, supervision and support of intensive in-home interventions for children at high risk for placement outside of their homes and communities for reasons of serious psychiatric disorders, abuse, neglect, and/ or chronic parental illness or substance abuse. Current research interest is the Family Health and Development Project (FHDP) a randomized controlled trial of the Intensive In-Home-Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Service (IICAPS), developed at the Yale and now replicated at 20 locations in Connecticut. The effectiveness of IICAPS is being compared to the Home-Based Child Treatment Coordination Program (HCTC) a clinically informed, less intensive, child centered, parent focused intervention. Outcome variables include psychiatric hospitalization, service utilizations, behavioral and functional changes, parental perception and the attainment of treatment goals. A recent Service to Science award from SAMHSA will support the development of a pilot study of Family Based Recovery (FBR) an integrated in-home substance abuse and parent-child relationship-based treatment program also developed at Yale with the support of the Department of Children and Families and replicated at 5 additional sites in Connecticut. more...
