Story
Tagline
Clinical psychologist and tobacco dependence researcher at Rutgers University.
Introduction
I'm an Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Associate Director, Division of Addiction Psychiatry at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School where I conduct research on tobacco use and dependence. As a member of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers, I also train clinicians in the use of motivational interviewing.

Other professional memberships include the Society for Research on Nicotine and Tobacco (SRNT) and the American Psychological Association's Society of Addiction Psychology (APA Division 50). I am an Associate Editor for the journal Nicotine & Tobacco Research.

As a clinical psychologist, I also see patients as part of our faculty practice, Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical Group. My practice focuses on substance use, depression, anxiety, stress management, and behaviors influencing other medical conditions (e.g., exercise, diet, medication adherence). Depending on the issue, my main treatment modalities include cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) and motivational interviewing (MI).

Most of my public posts here on Google+ will be on issues related to tobacco use and dependence.  Other public posts are likely to be about more general psychological science.

I moderate the comments sections on my posts, so be nice to each other (on-topic and factual is always appreciated too)!

Specific areas of interest within tobacco dependence include: treatment issues, smokers with mental illness, motivational interviewing, self-control strength theory, and task persistence.

Yep, smokers and addicts of every strip are all about thinking of the rights of others. What exactly is your problem understanding reality? Oh, duh, you are an addict.

I was happy to speak with Maiken Scott of +WHYY  for this story...

Smoking rates drop in NJ... unless you look at those with mental health issues. We need to do better.

The article below actually covers some of this, it is pretty interesting. Apparently smoking (nicotine consumption) is very pronounced among people with mental health issues as it is a way for them to cheaply self medicate.

+National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) *is hosting a Google+ Hangout on First Episode Psychosis on May 5, 2015, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. EST*
 
It's common for a person to have psychotic symptoms for more than a year before receiving treatment. Reducing this “duration of untreated psychosis” is important because early treatment often means a better recovery. Learn more during our Google+ Hangout on first-episode psychosis May 5 at 2 p.m. EST. We encourage your questions before and during the Hangout! http://1.usa.gov/1yCyi0X

There are even more reasons to quit smoking than previously known.
 
It turns out that smoking is even more deadly than we thought!
A new analysis suggests that an additional 60,000 deaths a year in the United States are linked to smoking.

Anyone have problems with Hangouts this morning?

I regularly hold a committee meeting on Google+ Hangouts to include people from different Universities in different states and countries and this usually goes very well, but this morning, everyone's voice was distorted.  It was bad enough that I had to cancel the meeting.

Any thoughts?

If only all blog comments were to be so carefully reviewed before publication, the internet would be a nicer place.
