1. addictive behaviors and substance abuse, and 2. psychopathology and clinical psychology.
1. Addictive behavior: Alcohol and gambling
The major aims are to identify factors involved in the acquisition and maintenance of drug seeking and taking behaviors, and to develop new theories and treatment methods that are effective in the prevention and treatment of these problem behaviors.
2. Psychopathology and clinical psychology.
My interests here are: 1. to investigate the mechanisms of change in psychotherapy, in particular Cognitive Behavior Therapy in the treatment of addictive behaviors andanxiety and mood disorders, and 2. to examine how the interface of social , psychological and biochemical variables impact on the processes of change in Asian cultures.
