Meet Patrick Romani, PhD

I believe in a collaborative approach to assessing and treating problem behavior, and am sure to include the patient and their family's preferences into the treatment planning process.

Get to know his background

My clinical interests involve identifying the function (i.e., purpose) of problem behavior and developing function-based treatments to decrease problem behavior and increase appropriate behaviors (e.g., compliance with adult instructions).

For Patients:
My research interests focus on identifying the most effective assessment and treatment procedures for children engaging in severe problem behavior (e.g., self-injurious behavior, aggression). Additionally, I am interested in learning how to increase access and decrease costs associated with receiving these clinical services by studying the delivery of these clinical services via telehealth. My other research interests include identifying procedures for decreasing the likelihood treatment relapse will occur.
For Referring Providers:
My clinical research interests are focused on improving assessment and treatment procedures for children engaging in severe problem behaviors (e.g., self-injurious behavior, aggression). Additionally, I am interested in studying the provision of behavior analytic services via telehealth. My translational research interests are in the area of behavioral momentum theory and behavioral economics. I am interested in studying procedures to decrease treatment relapse. That is, the reoccurrence of problem behavior following successful treatment.
