Dr. Meadow's interests are primarily in cognitive-behavioral assessment and treatment, both broadly and especially for anxiety disorders, with a primary professional interest overall in increasing access to effective interventions; these interests are also reflected in her regularly taught courses of Abnormal Psychology at the undergrad level and graduate seminars in CBT and in Ethics and Professional Issues, as well as clinical practicum training. Dr. Meadows is also interested in prevention of sexual assault and of psychopathology.
