Community-Based Research

The community-based research pod focuses on clinical research of community-based interventions including in-home services and on how to implement evidence-based practices more broadly in real world community settings. Additionally, scholars in the community-based research pod also work on international programs to address significant social needs and problems around the world.

  • The Early Childhood Peace Consortium (ECPC) is founded on the idea that the global community must address the root causes of violence and conflict and that children and families can be key agents of change for peace through strength-ening resilience of individuals and communities, and cohesion between groups.

  • IICAPS addresses the comprehensive needs of children with psychiatric disorders and their families who need assis-tance in managing children’s behaviors to keep them safe in the home and community.
  • Grounded in attachment theory and reflective parenting, Minding the Baby® (MTB) home visiting provides an integrated model of care for first-time young mothers and their families that bridges primary care and mental health approaches to enhancing the mother-infant relationship.
  • We are interested in better understanding the provision of outpatient mental health services for children and adolescents – including the ways in which youth and families access services, the tools used to support assessment, and the types of treatment interventions provided – with a goal of improving the effectiveness of clinical services.
