This manifests itself in two distinct lines of research.  The first involves investigating outcomes for minority youth.  Specifically, this involves looking at ethnic identity as a protective factor against negative youth outcomes.  The second line of research focuses on improving outcomes for youth with disabilities.  Currently, Dr. Fisher is looking at mindfulness as an intervention for impulsive youth with substance use behaviors.  Dr. Fisher teaches the following courses: Parent and Child Counseling, Individual Assessment of Personality Functioning, and Supervision for School Psychologists.                                             Email:
