Research Interests

Dr. Bagner conducts research examining evidence-based interventions for very young children and their families. He has specific interests in the use of parenting interventions in the prevention and treatment of externalizing behavior problems, particularly among high-risk populations of infants and toddlers with and at-risk for developmental delay and from low-income and ethnic and racial minority families. Dr. Bagner has published more than 50 peer-reviewed journal articles and has received grants from the National Institutes of Health continuously for the past 12 years to conduct his research.

Dr. Bagner currently serves as an editorial board member on seven journals and has served on several grant review committees for the National Institutes of Health and the March of Dimes. He is involved in several professional organizations, and serves as chair of the Research Task Force for PCIT International and as a board member of the Florida Association for Infant Mental Health. He was also appointed as the FIU representative to the board of directors for The Children’s Trust, an organization with a dedicated source of revenue established by voter referendum to improve the lives of children and families in Miami-Dade County.
