Pediatric Intervention Research in Affect Dysregulation and Mood Disorder (PIRAMD) Projects
Pediatric Intervention Research in Affect Dysregulation and Mood Disorder (PIRAMD)
Directed by Amy E. West, PhD
The PIRAMD lab’s overarching mission is to develop and test psychosocial interventions for children and adolescents at-risk for or suffering from mood disorders. The primary goal of these interventions is to address the psychosocial and interpersonal impairments that are often associated with symptoms of mood disorders. We have several ongoing research projects related to identifying risk factors for poor outcomes, testing the efficacy of psychosocial interventions, and working with high-risk community populations.
