Tim Cavell, Ph.D.
Dr. Cavell is a clinical child/family psychologist and professor in the Department of Psychological Science at the University of Arkansas interested in developing more effective interventions for high-risk, school age children. His research has focused on both highly aggressive children at risk for later delinquency and substance abuse, as well as chronically bullied who are showing signs of psychopathology and are at risk for a range of adjustment difficulties.
He has a particular interest in interventions that involve parents or adult mentors. Guiding his research is an integrated life course-social learning model of children. He is interested in how aggressive and bullied children view themselves and their relationships with peers and teachers, how bullied children try to cope with being bullied, and the strategies parents and teachers use to deal with instances of bullying and conflict between siblings/peers.
