CREATE Lab

Our group is engaged in research designed to promote the accessibility and effectiveness of interventions for youth with social, emotional, and behavioral problems delivered in community settings. Major themes in our research include distilling practice elements from the research literature, using practice elements to develop efficient interventions for community settings, and developing tools and training strategies to support the implementation of evidence-based interventions. Our current funded work focuses on effectiveness trials in mental health and school settings, the development of pragmatic self-report treatment integrity instruments to promote the evaluation, implementation, and sustainment of evidence-based interventions in community settings, and predictors of sustainment in school settings.
