The Family Translational Research Group (FTRG) within the Center for Oral Health Policy & Management at the New York University College of Dentistry is looking for talented, hard-working people with a passion for understanding and preventing family violence to join our team. FTRG conducts a wide variety of cutting-edge clinical psychology research on topics ranging from defining maltreatment in ways that can be reliably used by field workers, to determining how couples’ conflict dynamics relate to violence, to examining the effects of family violence on children’s psychological and physical functioning to furthering our understanding of risk and protective factors for child maltreatment and partner abuse. In addition to this basic research, FTRG is involved in several large prevention efforts in the military and is conducting innovative implementation science research. These studies use the full spectrum of research methods — from intensive observational tools to epidemiological surveys. The FTRG typically has least 8-10 active federally-funded projects. The group includes several Ph.D.-level psychologists, masters-level researchers and social workers, bachelor-level research staff, and student volunteers. The FTRG is co-directed by Dr. Amy M. Smith Slep and Dr. Richard E. Heyman. For more information about our group, go to www.ftrgroup.org .
