A primary mission of the Clinical Child Psychology Program is conducting research that impacts the lives of children and adolescents. The University’s Strategic Initiatives frame much of the applied and theoretical research that is conducted in the program. Specifically, faculty and students in the Program are recognized leaders in research that promotes well-being and helps find cures for conditions that impact child and adolescent quality of life. Similarly, faculty and graduate students conduct research that helps build strong communities and expands opportunities for children, youth, and families.
