Areas of Expertise: Primary Research Area:
My research focuses on the active mechanisms in empirically-based addictions treatments, particularly motivational interviewing. Specifically, I am interested in exploring client language during MI sessions and its possible influence on substance use outcomes. In addition, my research explores so called "common" factors, such as empathy, as possible explanations for the effectiveness of treatments. Finally, I am interested in how we teach complex empirically-based treatments like MI to frontline addictions treatment providers
