Dr. Loverich is very engaged in undergraduate and graduate education, research, clinical supervision and practice.

Her research interests include emotion regulation and experiential avoidance broadly speaking, overeating and other excessive behaviors as emotion regulation strategies, and modern behavior therapies that address emotion dysregulation including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and the Mindfulness-based therapies. An interest in multiculturalism pervades all of these areas of study, and all are studied utilizing modern behavioral theories and methods.

She has published articles, chapters, and a workbook in the areas of behavioral assessment and treatment, sexual deviance, treatment for sexual self-control problems and multicultural considerations in clinical practice.
