Dr. Cronce is a clinical psychologist and Acting Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Washington. Dr. Cronce received her Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Yale University in 2009 and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Center for the Study of Health and Risk Behaviors in 2011. Dr. Cronce’s research focuses on the complex relations between (a) alcohol use, (b) other health-relevant behaviors, including gambling, diet and exercise, and (c) related disease states, including comorbid mental disorder and diabetes. The overarching goal of her research is to uncover the mechanisms underlying these behaviors in order to improve current treatment approaches as well as develop novel interventions to reduce associated harms, thus increasing public health. Dr. Cronce has co-authored numerous publications on the topic of individual-focused alcohol prevention, including three large-scale reviews in 2002, 2007 and 2011, the first of which helped form the basis of recommendations made by the NIAAA Task Force on College Drinking. Her research experience is complimented by her clinical training in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy, which she has applied to the treatment of disordered gambling, substance use disorders, eating disorders and emotional dysregulation among adolescents and young adults.
