The aim of my team’s clinical research is to develop better and briefer ways to help people change addictive behaviors, to free themselves of the shackles of bad health habits, and to live healthier lives despite their health challenges. Further, these projects will tell us what makes a brief intervention like MI work as well as it does. By elucidating the mechanisms of change in MI, my research team and I hope to influence and improve practice.
Our current research topics include:
- Preventing Alcohol Exposed Pregnancy
- How Does Motivational Interviewing Work?
- Motivating Change in Health Behaviors Using Technology
