Michael Twohig Lab Center For Clinical Studies

This lab and the team who works here has one overarching objective: to assist in advancing the field of clinical psychology in developing effective and acceptable psychological interventions. This can take many forms. Some of our work focuses on the development and testing of psychological interventions, while other studies look at the characteristics of a psychological problem or interventions. Thus we use a variety of designs from case studies/series, single subject, group designs, as well as descriptive and correlational methods. We target a variety of disorders but most of our work is focusing on obsessive compulsive disorder and OC-spectrum disorders. We also believe in the utility of the scientific method in answering these questions, therefore, a portion of our work focuses on the development and critique of current scientific methods. The one link between all these areas is that, hopefully, our work results in the progression of the field of clinical psychology and that the people we serve receive more effective and acceptable psychological interventions.


Our lab is located on the campus of Utah State University in the Human Services & Research Center (HSRC) on the bottom floor in room #026. The HSRC is located next to the Center for Persons with Disabilities and Edith Bowen Laboratory School.
