Ashli J. Sheidow, PhD

Dr. Sheidow’s research interests have focused broadly on the development, prevention, and treatment of adolescent psychopathology and juvenile delinquency from an ecological perspective, with concentrations in co-occurring disorders, effective dissemination of evidence-based practices, and advanced quantitative methods. Her work has included intervention development and evaluation projects, as well as dissemination and implementation research. She has been NIDA-funded since 2003 for her work developing and evaluating an ecological clinic-based treatment for youth diagnosed with comorbid substance use and mental health disorders. In addition, Dr. Sheidow has been involved with a variety of other treatment development, quantitative, and economic evaluation projects for federally-funded studies of evidence-based practices and has directed research on training therapists in youth substance abuse interventions.
