Research interests

My primary research interests are in chronic pain management. Most of this research is applied clinic-based research focused on the development of psychological and interdisciplinary treatment methods. The primary strategy in this work is to explicitly combine outcome analyses with theoretically-based treatment process and moderator analyses. The guiding model for this research sits within the broadly Cognitive Behavioural approaches and can be called Contextual CBT. Contextual CBT is a generic term that reflects an emphasis shared across a number of different current therapies, including those that focus on exposure-based methods, mindfulness, acceptance, values, and a functional view of psychological experiences, among other qualities.   The more specific model guiding my research includes psychological flexibility, the primary treatment process within Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
