As a clinician and researcher, Deborah has contributed to projects designed to treat anxiety disorders and school refusal behaviours in adolescents, an fMRI study on women experiencing mental health issues and postnatal parenting difficulties, and the evaluation of a child and parent multilevel prevention and early intervention program developed to reduce the incidence and impact of emotional and behaviour difficulties in young children.
