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

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

This second line of research is highlighted by the Addressing Behaviour and Treatment Effectiveness (ABATE) project. In this project, Dr. Andrade and the Better Behaviours Service team at CAMH are using a randomized and controlled methodology to test the effectiveness of a clinic-modified version of the evidence-based Coping Power program compared to individually based treatment. Findings from this investigation will contribute to a clearer understanding of which clinic-based treatments are most effective and enduring for children with disruptive behaviour and which factors predict better treatment outcomes. Research findings from both lines of research will inform development of innovative and novel approaches to addressing the mental health needs of children with disruptive behaviour.
