Preventive Interventions Team: Collaborative Research on Engagement and Wellbeing
We are a multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary research lab with a focus on prevention interventions that optimize implementation of evidence-based practices to improve behavior, classroom, and school experiences for youth and school personnel, and/or reduce risk for behavioral and mental health problems.
Relationships, Ecologies and Activities for Developing Youth Lab
We are interested in how settings and interactions can be optimized to best meet adolescents’ developmental needs. In particular, we are focused on the role that relationships (with peers, mentors, non-familial adults) and activities play in adolescent development.
Youth Violence Project
The Virginia Youth Violence Project is a research group composed of faculty and graduate students in the School of Education and Human Development at the University of Virginia. We conduct research on youth violence prevention and school safety and provide training and consultation on topics such as threat assessment, bullying prevention, and forensic psychology.
