Dr. Kate Carey studies the causes and consequences of risky drinking, and the factors contributing to alcohol-related risk reduction. Research interests include screening and brief interventions for at-risk drinking, motivation to change, young adult drinking, alcohol use and risky sexual behavior.
Kate Carey earned her PhD at Vanderbilt University in clinical psychology in 1985 and completed a post-doctoral fellowship in addiction and behavioral medicine at the Miriam Hospital/Brown University. She joins the faculty in Public Health after 21 years at Syracuse University where she mentored 14 doctoral students and taught graduate and undergraduate courses. Her research addresses motivation to change substance use, application of screening and brief intervention models for at-risk drinkers, influence of social norms on drinking behavior, and the contribution of alcohol intoxication on sexual risk behavior. She has been funded by NIAAA for both therapy development and comparative efficacy trials of brief interventions with young adult drinkers. Her research has investigated mediators (readiness to change, normative perceptions) and moderators (gender, self-regulation, social comparison) of intervention response, as well as methods designed to enhance maintenance of change.
