The Body Image and Eating Behaviors lab is directed by Dr. Sylvia Herbozo. Our research focuses on three areas of eating disorders and obesity: 1) interpersonal and sociocultural factors associated with body image, eating disorder psychopathology and obesity in at-risk populations; 2) obesity interventions for racially and ethnically diverse young adults; 3) post-surgery interventions for bariatric surgery patients with limited weight loss and/or weight regain. We also have a new area of research that focuses on mentorship for Latino students in clinical psychology.
