Anil Chacko is a clinical psychologist whose research focuses on the development of engaging, effective, and sustainable prevention, intervention and service delivery models for youth at-risk for or affected with disruptive behavior disorders (e.g., attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder; oppositional defiant disorder; conduct disorder). Recently, through funding from the National Institute of Mental Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, he has focused much of his work on improving the efficacy of evidence-based psychosocial interventions and also on improving engagement to these interventions. His work has been largely influenced by his own ongoing clinical work with families and active collaboration with service providers in the community. He was on the faculty at the City University of New York from 2008-2014 prior to joining the faculty at Steinhardt.
