Dr. Larrieu's clinical and research interests focus on infant mental health, developmental psychopathology, and training issues. Most of her work deals with abuse and neglect of infants and toddlers, including identifying risk factors for abuse, as well as predictors of successful treatment for parents who have maltreated their children. She provides training in infant mental health to professionals who are skilled in working with school-age children, and to public health nurses who work with a variety of at-risk families.
Dr. Larrieu is an endorsed national and international trainer for Child-Parent Psychotherapy, an evidence-based intervention for children ages birth to six years of age who have experienced trauma and interpersonal loss, and their caregivers.
