My major academic interest has been in the area of infant mental health and adverse early experiences. I conduct research on the effects of abuse, neglect, serious deprivation and exposure to violence on young children and on interventions designed to help them recover. I also have studied approaches to understanding and classifying disorders of early childhood, especially disorders of attachment and posttraumatic stress disorder.
