Dr. Andrea Chronis-Tuscano received her Ph.D. from the State University of New York at Buffalo, and completed a clinical internship at the University of Chicago. She joined the faculty of the University of Maryland-College Park in 2002. Dr. Chronis-Tuscano directs the Maryland ADHD Program. her research focuses broadly on understanding early predictors of developmental outcomes for children with ADHD (including depression and alcohol/substance use) and developing novel treatments which target these early risk and protective factors. Much of this research has addressed issues related to maternal parenting and psychopathology (namely, maternal depression and ADHD). A secondary line of research, conducted in collaboration with faculty in Human Development and Quantitative Methodology, aims to examine the trajectory of young children displaying early behavioral inhibition, including the development of psychopathology, and to intervene by targeting key moderators of outcome (e.g., parenting and social relationships).

Free & Open to the Public.
