Aaron Hogue, Ph.D.

Vice President, Research and Clinical Science / Family and Adolescent Clinical Technology and Science (FACTS)

Aaron Hogue is a clinical psychologist focused on evidence-based practices for adolescent substance use (ASU) and related behavioral problems, behavioral treatment implementation science and adolescent developmental psychopathology. His 25-year research program on treatment fidelity to manualized interventions for ASU has examined the interplay among three components of treatment implementation — adherence to specific therapy techniques, competence in model delivery, and therapeutic alliance with session participants — linking each to long-term client outcomes.

His research encompasses evidence-based interventions for adolescents with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and co-occurring disorders, including a National Institute on Drug Abuse-funded mid-career training grant focused on combined behavioral and pharmacological interventions. He was chosen by the flagship journal for Clinical Child Psychology to lead their 2014 and 2018 updates of the evidence base on outpatient behavioral treatments for ASU, including formal “level of efficacy” designations for all stand-alone and combined approaches. Aaron’s newest research focuses on training front-line behavior therapists in core family therapy and cognitive-behavioral techniques for adolescent conduct and substance use problems via a learning management system that leverages observational coding methods and a measurement feedback system for treatment fidelity. He also focuses on enhancing the cross-sector continuum of care for adolescents with conduct and substance problems in various settings (primary care, specialty behavioral care, juvenile justice).

Aaron received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Columbia University and has a doctorate in philosophy, clinical psychology from Temple University.

Research topics: Development of family-based and cognitive-behavioral interventions for adolescent substance use and co-occurring disorders; development of online and other remote clinician training methods; research on family-based recovery supports; treatment fidelity research on evidence-based intervention models; combined behavioral and pharmacological interventions for teens with co-occurring ADHD and substance use disorder; neurodevelopmental processes that influence risky adolescent behavior
