Dr. Spieker focuses her research on infant and child social and emotional development. Most of her projects investigate caregiving and child outcomes in high-risk, vulnerable populations, including low-income families and maltreating or substance-using parents. She and her colleagues recently completed a clinical trial to test the effectiveness of Promoting First Relationships®, a brief, home visiting interventions that uses video feedback and strengths-based consultation strategies to help caregivers of toddlers in child welfare provide nurturing relationships with their children. As Director of the Barnard Center she and her colleagues offer a graduate certificate program in infant mental health.
