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.
