The Pelham Lab has been at the UC San Diego Department of Psychiatry since 2022.

We research externalizing spectrum psychopathology and substance use among children and adolescents.

Our current focus is parenting. Parenting is important to study because the most powerful clinical interventions to reduce externalizing problems focus on improving parenting as the core mechanism of change. Thus, the better we understand how parenting works, the better we can design and deliver treatments that reduce burden and cost to the affected children, families, and society.

Our work is supported by several funders:
