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?”
