Primary Research and Clinical Interests
Dr. J. Mark Eddy is a Senior Fellow Scientist and Licensed Psychologist. He is a Senior Research Scientist with the Family Translational Research Group at New York University, where he is involved in a wide variety of basic research and preventive intervention projects. During his over 25 year career at OSLC, he served as the principal investigator on multiple randomized prevention trials of programs delivered within systems of care relevant to children and families. These include the Child Study, a multi-site longitudinal randomized controlled trial of the Friends of the Children professional youth mentoring program; the Relief Nursery Study, a randomized controlled trial of a multimodal therapeutic preschool program for at risk children and families; the Parent Child Study, a randomized trial of Parenting Inside Out, a parent management training with incarcerated parents within adult corrections; the Paths Project, a study of the transition into young adulthood for youth who were heavily involved with the juvenile justice system and who participated in a randomized trial of Multidimensional Treatment Foster Care (MTFC, now known as Treatment Foster Care Oregon); and the Linking the Interests of Families and Teachers (LIFT) Project, a study of the transitions into young adulthood for participants in a randomized multi-modal school-based prevention intervention program that began during elementary school. He also served as co-investigator with OSLC scientist Dr. Charles R. Martinez, Jr. (now director of the Center for Equity Promotion in the College of Education at the University of Oregon) on a variety of projects through the Oregon Social Learning Center Latino Research Team, including the Latino Youth and Family Empowerment Project I and II, which developed and tested a culturally specific parent training intervention for Latino families with youngsters at risk for substance use and related problems; the Adolescent Latino Acculturation Study, which was designed to learn more about how Latino families and their middle school youth who have immigrated to the U.S. adapt to life in this country; and PREVENIR, which developed and refined a culturally specific parent and teacher training program in four countries in Central America. Following his work at OSLC, he worked for five years as a Research Professor and Director of Research at Partners for Our Children in the School of Social Work at the University of Washington, where he was engaged in a variety of projects focused on children and families involved in the child welfare system, including the development and testing of the STRIVE program.
