Jennifer Cadigan, PhD

Personal Statement

My program of research explores adolescent and young adult health behaviors, with an emphasis on the etiology, prevention, and intervention of high-risk substance use. My work has predominantly focused on developing and testing prevention and intervention programs for substance use and co-occurring mental health symptoms. This research program integrates evidence-based intervention strategies to reduce high-risk substance use and improve mood and coping strategies. I am also a licensed psychologist with a focus on delivering empirically-supported treatments for substance use disorders, depressive disorders, and anxiety disorders.
