My research focuses on developing methods to best address commonly presenting behavioral health concerns in children. Currently, I am in the process of developing multi-site cost offset and return on investment studies to support the dissemination of the integrated behavioral health model I practice in my clinical work. I am also interested in developing a group of studies concerned with the management of behavioral health concerns in children who come to their physician for a wellness visit (i.e., they are not sick). I am interested in the frequency with which these concerns are identified in wellness visits, and how they are addressed by physicians, and I am looking to explore how to best train physicians to manage some of the top behavioral health concerns that present in these situations. Lastly, I am interested in conducting applied research projects that utilize state-of-the-art technologies (internet, texting, webcasts, podcasts and/or email) to enhance the quality and efficacy of behavioral health techniques. My interest in this area centers on improving parent consultation techniques, improving adherence and maximizing communication between providers and patients.
