Scientific Focus

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

Dr. Taylor is developing and evaluating innovative electronic and computer-assisted programs to make treatments, proven effective for treating various lifestyle and psychosocial problems, more cost-effective and available. Research projects include the evaluation and development of computer-assisted and other innovative treatments for panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, social phobia, depression, eating disorders and cardiovascular risk-reduction. Related studies focus on the nature of anxiety and eating disorders.

Dr. Taylor is also developing prevention programs for eating disorders and obesity in college-aged women and in older adolescents. Having identifed risk factors for eating disorders, he is developing and evaluating interactive multimedia interventions assisted with electronic groups and other technologies to help prevent the onset of disorders in high-risk populations. His research group has developed population-based interventions for eating disorders, obesity and healthy weight regulation so that individualized programs can be offered to all participants simultaneously within defined populations.

Studies in this research group have demonstrated the efficacy and effectiveness of an inpatient tobacco use cessation program and have demonstrated methods and models for dissemination/implementation in a variety of hospitals.
