Dr. Wolff is an Associate Professor at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, Staff Psychologist at Rhode Island Hospital and Bradley Hospital, and the Director of the Adolescent Mood Clinic. Dr. Wolff's program of research involves three primary aims: 1) delineating social, cognitive, and affective mechanisms underlying adolescent psychopathology, 2) translating these findings into treatments, and 3) implementing these treatments in real-world settings. She focuses on emotional and behavioral dysregulation as well as suicide prevention. Current projects include large scale data collection in the inpatient setting and improving routine practices and quality of care in inpatient and community settings. She also investigates the use of technology in dissemination and implementation research.
