Current Research

  • Assessing the impact of an Internet-based parenting intervention for mothers with psychiatric disabilities: A randomized controlled trial
    This study is part of the Temple University Collaborative on Community Inclusion of Individuals with Psychiatric Disabiities and is an educational and peer- support intervention to assist mothers with psychiatric disabilities facing the challenges of raising their children to ensure that they retain custody of their children.

  • A randomized, controlled trial of an ‘inoculation against discrimination’ training intervention for African Americans with psychiatric disabilities
    This study is also a part of the Temple University Collaborative. Experiences of daily race related stressors have a profound impact on the mental health status of African American (AA) clients with severe psychiatric disorders. Working with a local community mental health center, investigators are implementing an RCT to assess the effectiveness of Stress Inoculation Training (SIT) for AA clients to improve their coping skills with daily discriminatory stressors encountered, and consequently, improve their psychiatric symptoms.
