Dr. Blader`s work has focused on the needs of children with severe behavioral and mood problems, particularly when they lead to impulsive aggression. He has been awarded research grants by the National Institute of Mental Health and the Brain and Behavior Foundation to conduct studies on treatment strategies for children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) with comorbid aggressive behavior, on the outcomes of children discharged from psychiatric inpatient services, and on the underlying neural mechanisms of ADHD and emotional dysregulation. He has also led the development of services to improve the care of children with these difficulties in primary pediatrics and in school settings. He is currently the PI for a multisite NIMH-sponsored clinical trial evaluating stepped-treatment approaches to children with severe psychiatric illness and for the development and evaluation of a collaborative-care model for integrating mental health treatment in primary pediatric settings.
