Claire’s research interests have centered on the development and implementation of interventions for children who exhibit problem behavior or who have fallen behind academically, and specifically on the effects of reinforcement history on current responding, the effects of treatment integrity failures on common behavioral treatments, and the use of laboratory settings to inform applied research. Claire has conducted research using both laboratory and school settings. In 2002, she developed a human operant laboratory to study the effects of treatment integrity failures on behavioral treatments such as DRO and DRA and has extended the findings of that research into applied settings. She also studied the effects of reinforcement history and development on behavioral interventions. She would like to continue her line of programmatic research focusing on treatment integrity and behavioral history, including the influence of developmental (historical) factors on children’s current responding.
