Dr. Gaynor's research interests include psychotherapy process and outcome, especially applying contemporary behavior therapy approaches. He and his laboratory are currently working on intervention studies involving children, adolescent, and young adult samples. He is also interested in the experimental analysis of human and non-human behavior.

The Behavior Research and Therapy Laboratory is committed to the scientist-practitioner model. As such, our intervention studies have two related purposes. First, for the participants involved, we hope to provide interventions that can legitimately improve their lives. Second, while providing these interventions we attempt to rigorously evaluate them, hoping to determine empirically if and why they are helpful. Currently we are working on intervention studies involving children, adolescent, and young adult samples.
