Listen to the Research Lectureship Talk by Robert McMahon, “Family-based Interventions with Young Children with Conduct Problems: Lessons Learned and Future Directions.”
Robert J. McMahon, Ph.D., is a Professor in the Department of Psychology at Simon Fraser University, where he is the LEEF B.C. Leadership Chair in Proactive Approaches to Reducing Risk for Violence Among Children and Youth. He is also a Scientist Level 3 in the Developmental Neurosciences and Child Health cluster of the Child & Family Research Institute (CFRI) at B.C. Children’s Hospital. To carry out the work of the Chair, Dr. McMahon will direct a new Institute for the Reduction of Youth Violence, which will be based at both SFU and CFRI. Dr. McMahon’s primary research and clinical interests concern the assessment, treatment, and prevention of conduct problems and other problem behavior in youth, especially in the context of the family. He is a principal investigator on the Fast Track project, which is a large, multisite collaborative study on the prevention of antisocial behavior in school-aged children that began in 1990 and continues today. It is the largest prevention trial of its type ever funded by the U.S. Federal government. Dr. McMahon is a 1975 graduate of the University of Virginia. This talk is sponsored by Youth-Nex.
