- 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.
- 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.
- Examining the contributions and limitations of ecological momentary assessment.
- 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.
- Examining an online abbreviated version of a behavioral program, the Community Reinforcement Approach (CRA) with college students in an effort to see if they can add enjoyable, healthy activities to their week that compete with substance use.
- Determining whether a therapist's competence (skill) in delivering CRA affects the client's outcome in a substance abuse treatment program.
