Overview of Interests

Dr. Schwartzman's research program aims to characterize and treat depression and suicidality in neurodiverse youth and adults, and to investigate ways to foster youth, adult, and family resilience. Her work integrates multiple measures of emotion and family dynamics (behavioral, clinical) to investigate individual, parent, and family factors in the pathway to depression in neurodiverse youth and adults. Dr. Schwartzman’s goals are to identify intervention targets for neurodiverse youth and adults, apply personalized approaches to treatment, and to improve individual and family quality of life.
