Sebrina Doyle Fosco‘s research focused on exploring novel and sustainable ways to support wellbeing in targeted services such as school, medical, community mental health, and juvenile justice settings. She is particularly interested in the use of mindfulness-based programming and social and emotional learning (SEL) for youth and adults in K-12 educational settings. As a part of this work, she is a certified facilitator and master trainer for Cultivating Awareness and Resilience in Education (CARE), a mindfulness-based professional development program used in educational settings with teachers and administrators. She is also a co-developer of the Mindful Awareness Program (MAP) for Wellness in Juvenile Justice, a self-care program designed to support youth services workers.
Dr. Doyle Fosco is also strongly committed to exploring ways to design research so that it is applicable to the real world during original research trials. She is passionate about teaching community members how to understand the research coming out of the ivory tower so they know how to use it and extend it through their own practice.
