BIO

Dr. Dubow conducts cross-sectional and longitudinal studies of risk and resource variables in children’s academic and behavioral adjustment. He is a co-PI on three studies in the Aggression research Group: 1) the Columbia County Longitudinal Study, a 40-year study of the development of aggression and competence over time and across generations; 2) the Israeli-Palestinian Exposure to Violence study, a longitudinal study of the effects of exposure to ethnic-political violence and violence in other contexts (e.g., school, family) on Middle East youth’s mental health outcomes; and 3) the exposure to violence study and subsequent violence and weapons use among adolescents and young adults, a 4-wave study of urban youth. He also collaborates with several Toledo-area community agencies conducting needs assessments of family and youth problems, and evaluating their school-based prevention programs aimed at enhancing self-esteem and decision-making skills, and reducing problem behaviors.
