When a child has an emotional or behavioral problem, there are many obstacles to getting effective care. Mental health problems among youth are hard to identify, and even when identified, few parents or even health professionals are aware of effective treatments. Finally, when a child’s needs are understood, access to care is limited and barriers are pronounced for ethnic minority children.

Psychology Staff Spotlight - Lorianne Bundick

Lorianne Bundick, Undergraduate Advisor, consistently goes beyond the scope of her job duties to enhance programs, provide service, and to pitch in where needed.  Last May, Lorianne went above and beyond in planning the Psychology Undergraduate Research Conference and came up with new ideas to enhance the organization and experience of the conference for both participants and staff.  With almost complete turnover of undergrad advisors over the last year, she has assisted greatly in training new advisors and covered duties when positions were vacant.  In addition to all that she does in the

Identity for members of negatively stereotyped groups such as Latino or African Americans is linked to a variety of detrimental life outcomes. Accordingly, robust findings across social science literatures document that making identity salient in ways that connect the self to negative stereotypes undermines academic achievement and adversely affects mental and physical health. Consistent with such findings, interventions that target social disparities experienced by members of negatively stereotyped groups often focus on the ways in which identity is associated with risk and negative consequences.

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and related conduct problems (e.g., aggression) are highly prevalent, treatment resistant, and they uniquely predict poor adolescent and adult outcomes. My research focuses on identifying factors that predict the onset, maintenance, and long-term prognosis of children with these challenges.
