In our lab at Duke University we ideate, develop, and test digital behavioral health interventions for underserved populations, such as individuals who experience persistent mental health symptoms, addiction, or chronic pain. We specialize in:
(1) designing digital tools to foster the practice of psychological flexibility and mindfulness, and
(2) the general application of a therapeutic approach called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. Our lab applies a variety of tools and methods, including group clinical trials methodology, single case experimental designs, user-centered design methods, and novel analytic tools for small N data. We are part of larger group of investigators at Duke’s Center for Addition Science and Technology, led by Dr. Joseph F. McClernon.
We have received funding from the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the University of Washington Innovation Award, Pfizer, and the National Cancer Institute. We are located in Durham, North Carolina (US), in a 540 square foot space adjacent to Duke University.
