University of Iowa -- Emily Thomas

Dr. Emily Thomas (formerly Kroska) directs the THRIVE Lab at the University of Iowa. The THRIVE Lab examines the effectiveness of ACT with at-risk samples. The lab also examines the role of ACT processes (psychological flexibility, mindfulness) in the link between traumatic life experiences and long-term outcomes -- both physical and psychological outcomes. Moreover, her work has investigated psychological flexibility amidst COVID-19-related adversity, measurement of psychological flexibility and approach-avoidance processes, and mHealth interventions. The lab personnel include graduate students, post-baccalaureate staff, and undergraduate students. Dr. Thomas accepts PhD students through the University of Iowa's Clinical Science PhD program within the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences; however, she will not be accepting applications for matriculation in the 2023-2024 academic year.
