Research Interests for John F. Curry

Research Interests: adolescent depression, substance abuse, CBT

My major research interest is in effective treatment for adolescent disorders, especially depression and substance abuse. CBT and combined CBT+ medication are interventions that I investigate. The role of the parents, the timing of treatments, the pace of intervention, and process factors contributing to positive outcome are some additional interests. I am also interested in personality development during adolescence and adulthood, and in personality assessment, integrating several paradigms (personological, empirical, and social cognitive models).
