Position: Clinical Faculty Department: Psychology Campus Address: Sloan Hall 209, Central Michigan University, Mount Pleasant, MI 48859 Email: meado1ea@cmich.edu Vitae: Curriculum Vita​e Website: www.chsbs.cmich.edu/elizabeth_meadows Bio: Dr. Meadows joined the CMU faculty in 1997. She teaches the required graduate courses on Cognitive Behavior Therapy (Psy785) and Ethics and Professional Issues (Psy765), and directs the Trauma and Anxiety Disorders Clinic, a specialty clinic within the Psychological Training and Consultation Center. Her research and clinical interests are primarily in cognitive-behavioral assessment and treatment of anxiety disorders, and in dissemination of empirically supported treatments in general and for anxiety especially. In the TADC, we are currently piloting an exposure therapy program for anxiety disorders as a whole, as a step toward increasing the use of this treatment amongst nonacademic clinicians. Dr. Meadows is also interested in prevention of psychopathology, and in prevention of assault through the examination of risk recognition as a factor in revictimization, and in the use of CBT methods to help people with medical problems.
