Dr. Bohr is a clinical psychologist specializing in atypical development and child and family treatment. Her research focus is on preventive community based interventions. Together with her graduate students and a team of clinicians she studies the following aspects of child and infant mental heath: parent-infant relationships, parental cognition in the context of maltreatment, treatment of childhood anxiety and culture-specific parenting practices. She is particularly interested in parent-child separations that occur during the process of migration. Dr. Bohr's research team is also involved in ongoing program evaluations of evidence based treatments in community clinics, and in the study of knowledge translation in the area of child treatment generally. Her research is applied and community based. She has a strong interest in social equity and the social determinants of child and family mental health.
