Professional Interests

Research interests include psychological aspects of health behavior with a focus on the effects of genetic testing for hereditary disease. Among persons at risk for Huntington's disease, the goals of research have been:  to identify the factors that distinguish persons who elect testing from those who do not; to identify the predictors of adjustment to favorable or unfavorable test outcomes; to quantify the incidence of major depression after a positive genetic test. Among persons at risk for hereditary colorectal cancer, research goals have been: to identify the psychological factors distinguishing test acceptors from test decliners; to identify the predictors of colorectal cancer screening behavior; and to determine the psychological effects of testing for hereditary cancer in children. Clinical interests include psychotherapy with adults, older adolescents, couples, and groups.
