Stephanie Krauthamer Ewing, PhD, MPH is a clinical and developmental psychologist. Her research focuses on healthy emotional development in childhood and adolescence and the impact of caregiving and attachment relationships on emotional development and psychological well-being. Much of her research explores parenting approaches and the various psychological and contextual influences on parenting. She has a particular interest in studying these relationships within ethnic minority families and families coping with poverty and oppression. Finally, her program of research focuses on translating knowledge from basic scientific research into clinical intervention and prevention programs that can effect change at both individual and systemic levels.
Together with mentors and colleagues from the University of Delaware, she contributed to the development and testing of “The Emotions Course for Children,” an emotions-based prevention program for preschool children at risk for behavior and emotional problems. She is currently a co-investigator on Family Safety Net 2, a clinical trial investigating the efficacy of Attachment Based Family Therapy vs. Individual Supportive Therapy for adolescents struggling with depression and suicide risk
