Forcino Lab

Stacy Forcino

Lab Focus

Dr. Forcino is a child clinical psychologist and affiliated with the M.S. in Clinical/Counseling Psychology program. Her lab focuses on the use of behaviorally-based principles and practices to solve problems of childhood. We are interested in the treatment of psychological disorders of childhood (e.g., Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Sleep Disorders, Enuresis/Encopresis), as well as effective solutions to more common problems of childhood (e.g., sibling conflict, noncompliance, bedtime problems, and difficulty with toilet training). Many of the therapeutic interventions we use rely on parents implementing specific behavioral interventions in the home. Therefore, we are also interested in how to best train parents and factors that affect treatment adherence and efficacy.

Current Projects

  • The Use of Behavioral Observation in Treatment Outcome Studies
  • Super Siblings Treatment Outcome Study
  • Correlates of Sibling Conflict
