Green's recent collaborative research initiatives include an examination of factors impacting the sustainment of evidence-based interventions in human services systems, using implementation science strategies to promote safer school environments and reduce suicidality for sexual and gender minority youth, facilitating utilization and scale-up of restorative justice practices in middle schools, and developing and testing mechanisms to implement strategies to create organization change and increase competence towards LGBTQ patients in Federally Qualified Health Centers. Overarching themes in Green's writings include youth risk and resilience, mental health services, LGBTQ youth, and positive youth development.
Details a study that uses a cluster randomized controlled trial of 12 culturally-diverse U.S. middle schools to examine whether using restorative practices with a multi-faceted implementation strategy (a) reduces negative outcomes, including expulsions, suspensions, truancy, and bullying and (b) improves positive outcomes related to grade-point-average, sense of safety, and teacher support.
Draws on implementation science to assess contextual challenges to implementation of strategies to create safe and supportive environments for LGBTQ youth.
Examines the relationships between organizational stress, provider adaptability, and organizational commitment.
Provides empirical quantitative data regarding job attitudes and job autonomy perceptions over time following evidence-based treatment (EBT) implementation. Indicates that concerns regarding the impact of EBT implementation on provider job perceptions should be minimized.
Combines descriptive quantitative survey data with qualitative interview and focus group findings to examine the role of collaboration within the context of public-private partnerships in child welfare systems.
Aims to identify key findings from empirical studies examining the dissemination and implementation of evidence-based practices for child and adolescent mental health.
