Michelle Woodbridge, PhD
The focus of Dr. Woodbridge’s research is on early intervention services and systems of care for children who have or are at risk for emotional and behavioral disorders. She is currently the co-principal investigator of an efficacy trial for CBITS in a local Bay Area school district. The four-year, school-based study will gather data on ways to support children dealing with the effects of traumatic events. Dr. Woodbridge provided similar leadership as co-director of the National Behavior Research Coordination Center, working with four university-based teams that evaluated the effects of behavioral interventions for early elementary students, and as co-director of the National Effectiveness Study of First Step to Success, an evidence-based program to support the positive behavior of early elementary school students. She has more than 18 years of experience in research and in evaluating community-based systems of care services for children.
