Our Objectives

  • Our overarching goal is to conduct cutting edge, clinically relevant research on identifying processes of coping and adjustment in families of youth with chronic health conditions.
  • We seek to use this knowledge to develop meaningful, effective interventions for these families that promote resiliency and foster optimal quality of life.
  • Ultimately, we aim to disseminate these clinical tools to pediatric psychologists and health care professionals around the country to aid in their delivery of evidence-based services in multiple treatment settings.
