Lisa Sanetti, PhD

Professor and Research Scientist (PI)

Department of Educational Psychology

Research Overview

Dr. Sanetti’s research interests include implementation science, the translation of evidence-based practices to applied settings, and school-based mental health. She recently completed an IES-funded project in which her research team developed and evaluated PRIME (Planning Realistic Implementation and Maintenance by Educators), a suite of strategies to support teachers’ implementation of classroom-based interventions. Her current research involves extensions of PRIME, evaluation of the feasibility and accuracy of ecological momentary assessment as a method of teacher self-report of their intervention implementation, and evaluation of the process by which schools adopt school-based mental health initiatives. Prior to joining UConn, she served as a behavioral consultant to schools serving and families with children experiencing significant mental health issues. Dr. Sanetti has been a licensed psychologist in Connecticut since 2009 and a Board Certified Behavior Analyst since 2012.
