Methods for improving clinical training and dissemination of evidence-based treatments
The main objective of Dr. Jacquart's clinical work and research program is to improve the treatment of mental health disorders. Dr. Jacquart's research is focused on exploring the mechanisms, dosing, and adherence of treatment and augmentation strategies for anxiety, depression, and related disorders. A second area of focus is research aimed at improving clinical training and the dissemination of evidence-based treatments.
Dr. Jacquart also directs the Behavioral Health Clinic, which is dedicated to providing high quality and affordable therapy for anxiety, depression, and related disorders to the Tucson community while simultaneously providing high quality clinical training to the University of Arizona clinical psychology graduate students. She has a strong theoretical orientation in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and uses approaches that are grounded in research.
