Katie Rosanbalm is trained as a child clinical and quantitative psychologist. Her work focuses on program implementation and evaluation in the areas of trauma-informed systems, self-regulation development, and child welfare. She has conducted longitudinal evaluations of child welfare reform, early childhood Systems of Care, and manualized mental health and educational interventions.
Rosanbalm co-authored a series of white papers on self-regulation development from birth through early adulthood: (1) building an applied model of self-regulation; (2) reviewing the impact of toxic stress on self-regulation; (3) reviewing the evidence for self-regulation interventions across the developmental spectrum; and (4) discussing policy and programmatic implications for ACF programs and funding. She has also served on multiple state-level boards and task forces to strengthen the evidence-based implementation of programs for children and families.
Rosanbalm currently leads several ongoing evaluation projects, including:
- Incredible Years Dinosaur School, a randomized controlled trial of self-regulation interventions in 120 NC Pre-K classrooms
- Partnering for Excellence, a partnership with Benchmarks to improve the integration of child mental health services into child welfare
- Resilience and Learning, a partnership with the NC Public School Forum to development and implement a trauma-sensitive school model in North Carolina.
In addition, Rosanbalm is co-investigator for an ACF-funded project reviewing the literature on self-regulation development from birth through early adulthood. For this project, Rosanbalm and colleagues recently completed a series of papers: (1) building an applied model of self-regulation; (2) reviewing the impact of toxic stress on self-regulation; (3) reviewing the evidence for self-regulation interventions across the developmental spectrum; and (4) discussing policy and programmatic implications for ACF programs and funding.
