Dr. Weingarden's research interests are broadly focused on cognitive and emotional risk factors for poor psychosocial outcomes in individuals with obsessive-compulsive related disorders (OCRDs) and body image disturbances. She is particularly interested in the roles of shame and other non-anxiety emotions (e.g., disgust, guilt) in OCRDs. Dr. Weingarden is also interested in issues of access to empirically supported treatments and how technology may be used to improve treatment access.
