Andres De Los Reyes, PhD, of the University of Maryland at College Park, has won the American Psychological Foundation and Div. 29 (Psychotherapy) Early Career Award for his work to improve clinical assessments of children and adolescents.

Specifically, De Los Reyes’s research focuses on understanding why parents, teachers, children and clinicians often report childhood psychopathology differently, and how those disagreements influence the science behind identifying risk factors for childhood disorders and effective treatment.

Colleagues say De Los Reyes’s work could resolve major empirical, methodological and theoretical challenges that researchers, practitioners and policymakers face when identifying effective evidence-based interventions for children and adolescents.

De Los Reyes earned his PhD from Yale University in 2008. His research has already appeared in Psychological Review, Psychological Bulletin, Psychological Assessment and Clinical Psychology Review. He is also an associate editor for the Journal of Child and Family Studies.
