Lori A. J. Scott-Sheldon received her PhD in 2006 from the University of Connecticut in Social Psychology, specializing in health psychology and quantitative methods. Her work broadly focuses on health promotion and disease prevention. Most of her research uses meta-analytic methodology and statistical analyses to determine the efficacy of behavioral, social, and biomedical interventions to promote health behavior change and to evaluate individual, contextual, and structural factors that facilitate behavior change (i.e., moderators of treatment efficacy). Dr. Scott-Sheldon also has an extensive line of primary-level research investigating facilitators and barriers of sexual health in the context of alcohol use.
