ONGOING RESEARCH PROJECTS

Project I: A parent management training-focused smartphone app to foster improved inter-session adherence and behavioral monitoring - 

Poor adherence to inter-session practice of learned skills and poor monitoring of ABC behavioral log data significantly reduces positive outcomes for families completing parent management training (PMT) to address child-related symptoms of disruptive behavior disorders (DBD) or Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Smartphone applications (apps) have been proposed as a convenient and cost-effective means to enhance family adherence to the treatment of DBD and ADHD, and may lead to improved outcome, reduced treatment length, and reduced family costs of continued care. No published work has directly examined app use to improve treatment adherence to PMT for DBD/ADHD. The purpose of this project is to evaluate a PMT-focused smartphone app designed to improve inter-session caregiver adherence and monitoring for PMT skills.

Project II: Creating a normative sample for use of the Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL), Teacher Report Form (TRF), Caregiver-Teacher Report Form (C-TRF), and Youth Self Report (YSR) across Trinidad and Tobago -

The CBCL (for ages 1.5-5 and 6-18), TRF (6-18), C-TRF (1.5-5), and YSR (11-18) are standardized, evidence-based, paper-and-pencil forms completed by the caregiver, teacher, daycare/preschool teacher, and adolescent (i.e., self), respectively. The questionnaires allow for the evaluation of the child or adolescent's adaptive, emotional, and behavioral functioning as compared to a normative sample (i.e., what is considered to be in the "typical" range of functioning for youth of a similar age) with consideration for age and gender. Further, the Multicultural Family Assessment Module (MFAM) allows the CBCL, TRF, C-TRF, and YSR scores to be compared to dozens of user-selected societies for more tailored findings. Evaluation of the assessments across countries has demonstrated the impact of cultural differences in outcome scores, with some societies demonstrating mean problem scores that are deviant from others, suggesting the need to assess each culture separately and not assume uniform responding to their American counterparts. While the MFAM can be helpful to tailor the assessments, they have never been evaluated for The Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. Given past country-wide reports of a need for assessment and treatment to improve child and adolescent socioemotional health, findings of a high rate of depression (i.e., 15% for Trinidadian and 10% of Tobagonian adolescents), and the report from the World Health Organization that indicated Trinidad and Tobago as having the second highest rate of suicide in all the West Indian islands, early identification and treatment becomes essential. The current multi-site collaborative study seeks to create a normative sample for the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago through a surveying of children and adolescents across the islands.
