Dr. Farley’s research centers on the mental health needs and treatment interventions for at-risk young children, parents and their families. Specific interests include the assessment of parent-child interactions and family relationships, parent knowledge and competence, symbolic play, emotion regulation and the influence of the clinical relationship on parental stress and well-being. Currently, Dr. Farley is working on a funded study with a community mental health early childhood program focused on identifying specific tenants of the clinician-parent relationship and its impact on child and parent treatment outcomes. Prior to academia, Dr. Farley was a clinician serving children and families in Western-Wayne County for eleven years.
