Does Dr. Black plan to recruit a doctoral student for the next incoming class?
My research interests lie broadly in the area of developmental psychopathology, with particular interest in risk for mood disorders during childhood and adolescence. Currently, my lab is investigating how parenting behaviors and parental psychopathology may influence the development of emotional regulation abilities during middle childhood and adolescence. Given our understanding of adolescence as a period of marked change, my research also considers how the normative hormonal, social, and environmental events of childhood and adolescence can be disrupted and lead to increased risk for emotional dysregulation. and subsequent psychopathology. Finally, I am a licensed clinical psychologist and maintain an ongoing interest in assessment and treatment of children and adolescents with a variety of presenting problems.
