Framework Guides Organization-wide Implementation of Intervention for Youth with Challenging Behaviors
An implementation framework helped better advise schools and social service agencies about how to adopt Mass General's Collaborative Problem Solving intervention for youth with challenging behaviors.
Dr. Marques’ major clinical and research interests include the implementation of evidence-based practices for individuals suffering from a variety of behavioral health disorders in diverse communities. Her goal is to decrease disparities in care for individuals experiencing behavioral health difficulties, especially among low-income and ethnic minorities. Upon beginning her work in community mental health clinics, Dr. Marques became increasingly aware of the substantial implementation gap in evidence-based psychotherapeutic treatments for anxiety and trauma-related disorders. Dr. Marques founded Community Psychiatry PRIDE in 2013, and her research now centers primarily on reducing the disproportionate mental health burden among underserved populations in resource-constricted community clinics across Massachusetts.
