Position Description: We are hiring a full-time research coordinator to assist in the conduct of two collaborative community-based studies of evidence-based practices (EBPs) in children's mental health and school settings. Under the direct supervision of Dr. Anna Lau, the coordinator will work on two projects: 'Identifying Quality Indicators within Multiple EBP Delivery in Child Mental Health Services' This is a multi-site (UCLA and UCSD) NIMH-funded project focused on community therapists' implementation of multiple evidence-based practices for children's mental health. The aims of the study are to develop a pragmatic quality assessment tool to assess therapist delivery of EBP strategies associated with positive client outcomes. This study is being conducted by Drs. Lauren Brookman-Frazee (UCSD) and Anna Lau (UCLA).
'SAFETY-A for Promoting Equity in Suicide Prevention Outcomes in Schools '. This study will adapt Safe Alternatives For Teens and Youth ? Acute (SAFETY-A) for implementation in low-resourced school districts to reduce racial/ethnic disparities in mental health service use (MHS) following identification of suicide risk in youth. SAFETY-A will be adapted to fit the organizational context of school districts and address the mechanisms underlying disparities in aftercare for Asian American and Latinx students. Following a prototyping case series, school districts will be randomized to the timing of SAFETY-A implementation to evaluate feasibility and preliminary effects across racial/ethnic groups.
