Research

In addition to our work developing, evaluating, and disseminating evidence-based programs, the ASU REACH Institute also supports a number of exciting projects that focus more broadly on the science of intervention development, implementation, and evaluation. These research projects include investigating the risk and protective factors associated with child and family well-being, applying this research to develop treatment and prevention programs, studying factors that contribute to variation in program implementation and how implementation relates to outcomes, and identifying methods to increase participant engagement, provider efficacy, and quality of assessment related to these programs.

Post-Doc/Pre-Doc Research Training in Drug Abuse/HIV Prevention: Closing the Research-Practice Gap

NIDA-funded T32 post-doctoral training program focusing on closing the research-practice gap in drug abuse and HIV prevention.Training is delivered through individually-tailored programs of coursework in drug abuse, HIV, and implementation science and mentored research experience. Trainees select multiple mentors from a large and multidisciplinary faculty whose work includes preventive interventions with children and families in settings including schools, health care, community mental health settings, and family courts. Emphases include implementation science for the adoption and sustainability of preventive interventions in natural service delivery settings, interventions for ethnically diverse populations, and quantitative methods in prevention science. Training is for a two-year period. We are currently accepting applications for Post-Doctoral positions starting in the Fall of 2015.
