    • The impact of family separation on infants, young children and families in diverse contexts including Indigenous contexts and globalization/immigration
    • Infant Mental Health: Attachment difficulties and cognitive correlates
    • Cognitive behavioral interventions for children, youth and families
    • Parental Attributions in families at risk for relational ruptures and maltreatment
