Research Interests

Dr. Dishion is interested in translational research on relationship dynamics associated with child, adolescent and young adult mental health and competence. His research focuses on peer, family and romantic relationship dynamics underlying the development of psychopathology and competence. His work uses various methods including longitudinal studies, observational and social neuroscience techniques such as high-density array EEG. His intervention research involves the design and testing of empirically supported interventions such as the Family Check-up, and identifying intervention strategies that are potentially iatrogenic to youth development.
