Christopher Kearney (Psychology) published several articles to begin 2021. The first, “A Multi-tiered Systems of Support Blueprint for Re-opening Schools Following COVID-19 Shutdown,” was published in Children and Youth Services Review. This article provides a roadmap for school officials to address major domains of student functioning (adjustment, traumatic stress, academic status, health and safety) across tiers of support (universal, targeted, intensive) as they re-open physical learning environments. The second, “Integrating Systemic and Analytic Approaches to School Attendance Problems: Synergistic Frameworks for Research and Policy Directions,” was published in Child and Youth Care Forum. The third, “Assessing School Attendance Problems: A Critical Systematic Review of Questionnaires,” was co-authored and published in the International Journal of Educational Research. The fourth, “Unique Factor Structures of the Adolescent Dissociative Experiences Scale and Posttraumatic Cognitions Inventory and their Relation to PTSD Symptom Clusters in Maltreated Youth,” was accepted for publication in Journal of Aggression, Maltreatment and Trauma and co-authored with UNLV graduate student and first-author Amanda Howard. The fifth, “School Attendance and Problematic School Absenteeism in Youth,” is an e-book collection of special series articles edited by Kearney and others in Frontiers in Psychology, Frontiers in Education, and Frontiers in Psychiatry.
