About Me

Dr. Vidair is the Co-Director of Clinical Training and Assistant Professor in the Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program at LIU Post. She earned her Ph.D. in Combined Clinical and School Psychology from Hofstra University in 2005. She then completed a National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) Research Fellowship in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Columbia University and the New York State Psychiatric Institute. Dr. Vidair’s research interests focus on managing parental symptoms in the context of child and adolescent treatment, engaging underserved parents in treatment, and assessing parental cognitions during parent-child interactions. She is the Director of LIU Post’s “Family Check-In” program, a low-cost, 3-session program for parents of 2-7 year-olds. Family Check-In is designed to identify child and family difficulties early and help parents make informed decisions about mental health treatment and related services. In 2013, she received university funding to evaluate this program. She is co-authoring a book entitled, “The Theses and Dissertation Guide for Doctoral Students in Applied Psychology and Related Fields” (under contract with Oxford University Press). She served as Guest Editor of the “Anxiety Disorders” issue of the Child and Adolescent Clinics of North America series. Her research has been published in leading peer-reviewed psychology and psychiatry journals. She has received several awards, including the National Institute of Health Clinical Research Loan Repayment Award, the NIMH Child Intervention, Prevention, and Services (CHIPS) Research Fellowship, and named a New York State Office of Mental Health Policy Scholar. She is actively involved in the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT), currently serving as President of the Child and School-Related Issues Special Interest Group, Chair of the Ambassador Program, and formerly Chair of the Membership Committee. She maintains a private practice in Great Neck, specializing in cognitive-behavioral treatment of child and adolescent anxiety and depression, parent training, and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) for adolescents, young adults, and parents.
