The Health Intervention and Treatment Research Lab conducts clinical research to enhance our understanding of how and why people change their health behaviors. Our research focuses primarily on addictive behaviors (e.g., alcohol and other drug use) but also targets other health behaviors, such as sleep and nutrition.
Our goal is to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of prevention and treatment among high-risk populations (e.g., young adults, Veterans).
We are particularly interested in electronic interventions that can be widely disseminated to increase the reach of public health promotion and prevention efforts. We collaborate closely with Dr. Christina McCrae’s Mizzou Sleep Research Lab and have several ongoing projects examining change in sleep as a mechanism of change in alcohol-related problems. Current projects are randomized controlled trials that involve daily, self-report, cognitive, and physiological assessments.
