For the past two decades I
have been examining the role of the school and family for establishing,
maintaining, and reducing aggression and violence in children
and adolescents. In particular, for the past seven years our
GREAT Schools and Families Program has been investigating the
effect of targeted interventiosn for high-rate aggression students
compared to universal interventions with teachers and the general
student population in middle schools. Additionall, we have been
studying the role of the teacher, counselor, and family members
for reducing bullying and victimization in elementary and middle
school students, attempting to understand program elements that
impact risk and protective factors.
