Jaleel K. Abdul-Adil, PhD
Associate Professor of Clinical Psychology in Psychiatry
Associate Director of the Disruptive Behavior Clinic
Dr. Abdul-Adila's career interest is culturally-sensitive, evidence-based practices for low-income urban youth and families in both university-based clinics and community-based settings.
His current research focuses on family-oriented outpatient interventions for youth with conduct disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, and co-morbid conditions (including post-traumatic stress from community violence).
Dr. Abdul-Adil also consults with local schools and community mental health agencies to establish research-based protocols for assessment and treatment of disruptive behavior disorders and other mental health problems.
In addition, Dr. Abdul-Adil is a nationally-renowned expert on the use of modern Rap music and Hip-Hop media to enrich psychosocial and educational programs for urban youth.
