Dr. Bilsky’s research is focused on understanding familial processes that increase risk for parent and adolescent psychopathology and substance use. Specifically, she integrates clinical and developmental science to examine factors that increase risk for the development and maintenance of disorders characterized by anxious arousal (e.g., panic disorder, PTSD) and substance misuse (e.g., cigarette smoking, alcohol use). Her research program spans several stages of development (i.e., childhood, adolescence, and adulthood) although the primary focus of her work is the development and maintenance of these issues among adolescents and their parents.

Courses Taught:

  • PSY 202: Statistics for Behavioral Sciences
