Our research team has a number of overlapping research interests that span psychotherapy processes and outcome, acceptance-based behavioral strategies for emotional and behavioral health problems, the nature and treatment of various anxiety disorders, and science versus pseudoscience.
The research team was recently awarded a NIH grant for the Mind Your Health project; this randomized controlled trial compares acceptance-based behavioral treatment versus standard behavioral treatment for obesity.
We are also conducting a RCT to compare the effectiveness of two forms of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for social anxiety disorder: cognitive therapy (also known as traditional CBT), and a newer model of CBT known as acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT).
