About Us

The Innovation in Child and Family Wellness Research Group (Innovative Wellness) seeks to offer innovative solutions to prevent adverse childhood experiences and promote child and family well-being through the development and dissemination of empirically-based knowledge, practice, and policy. Furthermore, we create and evaluate innovations in trauma-informed social-emotional learning and adolescent substance abuse prevention programs. Innovative Wellness also trains emerging scholars, students, and practitioners in building competence in applied research.
