Dr. Julie Larrieu’s research focuses on infant mental health, developmental psychopathology, training, and policy issues. The majority of her work deals with abuse and neglect of infants and toddlers, including identifying risk factors for abuse as well as predictors of successful treatment for parents who have maltreated their children. Current research projects assess caregiver-infant relationships and resilience in the face of maltreatment. Also, Dr. Larrieu is a certified national trainer for Child-Parent Psychotherapy, an evidence-based intervention for children up to age 5 years of age who have experienced trauma and interpersonal loss.
