Research Summary

Radliff's research has focused on two areas within school psychology: mental health and social justice. Specific to mental health, she examins aggressive behavior (e.g., bullying, relational aggression) and related factors (e.g., internalizing issues, cognitive or psychosocial constructs, and substance use) that affect students’ educational experiences.
