My research focuses on using modern technology to disseminate evidence based psychological treatments. Most people do not receive such treatments and technology is one key to solving this problem. The current project that I am involved with is designing and building web-based therapist training programs in the fields of eating disorders and depression. This work is funded through a Wellcome Strategic Award. For further information, please visit www.credo-oxford.com
I also have expertise in designing and implementing treatment programs that use simulated therapist assistance. An example of this work is AI-Therapy, an online program to help people overcome social anxiety.
