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. 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 (e.g., normative perceptions) and moderators (gender, self-regulation, social comparison) of intervention response, as well as methods designed to enhance maintenance of change.
