Areas/Topics of Interest in MCH: children’s health, children in at-risk families, child abuse and family violence, child welfare and related systems.
Current Research/Area of Study: My dissertation will look at families who experience both child abuse and domestic violence, and child outcomes in those families. I will use a family-centered approach to look at when (and if) domestic violence is identified in families experiencing child abuse, how services are provided, and the experiences of dual-violence families within the child welfare system.
