Expertise: Dr. Bearman's current research interests center on four main agenda: 1) Using consumer feedback, practice-based evidence, and the existing evidence base to adapt or redesign interventions for better fit in usual care contexts where children and families receive services 2) Identifying training and supervision processes that foster the adoption, implementation, and sustainability of empirically supported interventions for youth 3) The role of treatment integrity (adherence, competence, and differentiation) in the effectiveness of youth interventions and 4) The use of non-traditional providers and settings to increase access to effective interventions. Dr. Bearman has specific expertise in empirically supported interventions for youth with depression, anxiety, conduct disorders and traumatic stress; dissemination and implementation science; observational behavioral coding systems to assess therapy and supervision process; and mixed-methods approaches to research, including experimental and quasi-experimental design, qualitative and community participatory research, and longitudinal risk factor modeling. Dr. Bearman has also worked with community partners in a number of different child service contexts, including schools, clinics, and child welfare agencies.
