Innovative translation of psychological and clinical science to family law and court systems is at the core of our research program and the doctoral training opportunities in my lab. Our research empirically evaluates the effects of family law interventions in the court setting. It is designed to bring empirically supported interventions to court and to disseminate evidence based practice in family law. As part of that effort, we conduct randomized controlled trials (RCTs) on different family law interventions.
