Cognitive-Behavioral Intervention Research for Aggressive Children: Optimization in Delivery Format and by Child

Speaker: John E. Lochman, PhD, ABPP- University of Alabama


1. Describe advantages and results of addition of internet components to a structured CBT program like Coping Power.

2. Describe how child characteristics (inhibitory control, oxytocin receptor gene, autonomic nervous system) predict differential outcome results for group versus individual delivery of intervention with aggressive children.

3. Describe how clinician characteristics and behaviors affect long-term outcomes at 1 four-year follow-up after intervention for aggressive children seen in Coping Power groups.

About the Speaker:

John E. Lochman, PhD, ABPP is Saxon Professor Emeritus of Psychology, and was the founding Director of the Center for Prevention of Youth Behavior Problems (now Center for Youth Development and Intervention) at The University of Alabama. He received an honorary doctorate from Utrecht University in 2004 for his prevention research, the International Collaborative Prevention Award from the Society for Prevention Research in 2009, the 2011 Distinguished Career Award from APA Division 53 (Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology), 2013 Southeastern Conference Faculty Achievement Award, and the 2014 Award for Distinguished Service and Contributions to the Profession of Psychology from the American Board of Professional Psychology. His federal research funding over the past 35 years, and his over 425 publications, have primarily addressed contextual social-cognitive risk factors and intervention research for children with behavior problems. The school-based and community-based prevention programs he has co-developed and evaluated (Coping Power Program, as well as the Anger Coping Program and Fast Track Program) use cognitive-behavioral, emotion-regulation, and social problem-solving approaches with children, and behavioral parent training with parents, and have become recognized as evidence-based programs. Dr. Lochman has been involved in research examining how Coping Power can be adapted for different populations and integrated with different treatment components to potentially enhance the intervention effects.
