Dr. Brendan Andrade is a Clinician-Scientist in the Child, Youth and Family Service and in the Margaret and Wallace McCain Centre for Child, Youth & Family Mental Health at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health. He is also Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto. 

Areas of Research
Dr. Andrade’s research focuses on understanding the factors that contribute to and maintain disruptive behaviour in childhood and on clinic-based and community-based intervention for disruptive and aggressive behaviour.

He is pursuing two lines of interrelated research: 1) The social, cognitive and neuro-cognitive correlates of aggressive and disruptive behaviour in childhood; and 2) Effectiveness and predictors of short-term and long-term treatment outcome of children with disruptive behaviour and their caregivers participating in cognitive-behavioural group treatment. 

This second line of research is highlighted by the CIHR-funded Addressing Behaviour and Treatment Effectiveness (ABATE) study to personalize psychosocial intervention for children with disruptive behaviour. This innovative project will identify clinical profiles based on key child-level psychological and neuropsychological indicators and lead to improved health outcomes by addressing the important question, “Which psychosocial treatments work for whom?”
