Earlier in his career he worked for 3 years full-time as a school psychologist, and he has worked as a consulting school psychologist in three states while working as a university educator. Dr. Merrell’s teaching and research interests are focused on social-emotional assessment and intervention for at-risk children and adolescents, as well as social-emotional learning in schools. He has a long list of publications, including five books and five nationally normed assessment instruments related to these areas. He is a Fellow in both the Division of School Psychology (Division 16) and the Society for Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology (Division 53) of the American Psychological Association.

Emphasis in Dr. Ervin’s work has been placed on systems-level change and the merging of research and practice agendas to support school personnel in the timely provision of primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention efforts to address student needs.
