My main research focus is on ADHD in adults and children. My first study in this area examined the link between perinatal complications and ADHD. Subsequently, I found a lower rate of ADHD in adoptive relatives of children with ADHD compared to the rate of ADHD in biological relatives of children with ADHD. I was a co-investigator on an NIMH R-03, which was the first U.S. study to provide empirical support for a psychosocial treatment for ADHD in medication treated adults with residual symptoms. I was a co-investigator on an NIMH-R01 testing the efficacy of this intervention. I was also the co-PI on an NIMH R-34 grant evaluating our psychosocial treatment for ADHD in high school students. I have been an active investigator in other research projects including a research project examining the impact of D-cycloserine administration in the CBT treatment of children and adolescents with OCD (D.Geller, PI). Currently, I am involved in a grant examining CBT for Body Dysmorphic Disorder (Wilhelm, PI) and CBT for young men with Autism Spectrum Disorders (Henin, PI).
