Curriculum Vitae

Department(s): Psychology, Center for Children and Families

Erika Coles earned her B.A. in Psychology, M.A. in Psychology, and Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University at Buffalo, New York. Dr. Coles's research interests include increasing the effectiveness of behavioral interventions for the treatment of ADHD, particularly in the school setting. Specifically, Dr. Coles is developing and examining the feasibility of a multi-component consultation intervention to enhance teacher integrity and student outcomes in the context of a DRC intervention for students with ADHD. The multi-component consultation intervention addresses teacher knowledge, attitudes, and skills, as each of these factors can serve as a barrier to high integrity and each has been identified as relevant to the development of adult competencies.
