Lindsey Weiler, Ph.D., LMFT

ITR Affiliate Faculty

Assistant Professor, Department of Family Social Science

Lindsey’s research focuses on the development of efficacious preventive interventions to improve behavioral health among adolescents at risk for adverse outcomes. With support from the National Institute on Drug Abuse and the William T. Grant Foundation, her research has focused on testing the impact and process of relationship-based interventions for high-risk children and families. Lindsey is a member of the National Mentoring Resource Center Research Board, funded by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. Her current research explores for whom, and under what conditions, youth mentoring practices are most effective. Within this work, she is examining (a) the change mechanisms of a one-to-one and group mentoring program facilitated by family therapists for system-involved youth, (b) the influence of adverse childhood experiences (e.g., maltreatment) on adult-youth mentoring relationships, and (c) the effect of mentoring on behavioral health and adolescent-parent relationship quality.
