Research Area/s:

Clinical Psychology

Research Interests:

  • Body Image/Eating Disorders/Obesity Area:
  • Determining why ethnic minority women prematurely drop out of weight management treatment, and how to address this dilemma. We have learned that two factors in particular lead to early termination: extremely poor body image and "familism" (family comes first). We ran focus groups to follow up on these issues, and we are designing a study that will address body dissatisfaction prior to a weight management intervention.
  • Examining the factors in a mother-daughter relationship that appear to serve a protective role against poor body image and disturbed eating in the daughter.
  • Using EMA (Ecological Momentary Assessment) to examine intuitive eating.
  • Examining the personal and relational impact of varying responses to "Fat Talk" in the context of female friendship.
  • Understanding the relationship between nutritional preferences, actual food consumption, and body image.
  • Exploring the role of media use and upward social comparisons in a biopsychosocial model of body dissatisfaction.
  • Exploring the use of popular eating disorder measures (EAT, EDE-Q, EDI) in ethnic/racial minority populations, given that they were standardized (many years ago) on non-Hispanic White women.
  • Exploring "healthy eating" and "dieting": what exactly do these mean to college students, and what kind of problems do they create?
  • Substance Use Treatment Area:
  • Determining the ways in which CRAFT (Community Reinforcement and Family Training) can be culturally modified to better suit Native American populations.
  • Looking at trajectories for symptom change in a clinical sample of adolescents with comorbid problems (substance use and mental health issues), and the role that perceived social support may play.

Profile:

Accepting students?  Yes, Dr. Smith hopes to accept an incoming student to begin in Fall 2021.

I am interested in two major areas of research: body image/eating disorders/obesity and substance use treatment. For the body image/eating disorders/obesity area, I primarily am focusing on risk factors, such as extreme body dissatisfaction. For the substance use treatment area I am focusing on CRAFT (Community Reinforcement and Family Training); a treatment that works with the family members of treatment-refusing individuals with substance use problems.
