Jessica M. Cronce, PhD
Jessica M. Cronce, PhD, has over a decade of experience conducting research on the etiology, maintenance, prevention and treatment of addictive behaviors, in particular, problematic alcohol use and gambling among college students and other young adults. Her research interests also extend to how drug use, dietary behaviors and level of physical activity interact with alcohol use to predict overall health risk in this population. 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 original National Institutes on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) Task Force on College Drinking. Building on this work, Dr. Cronce was invited to serve as one of three leading researchers on the individual-level strategies development team for NIAAAâ€™s College Alcohol Intervention Matrix (College AIM) project. Her research experience is complimented by her training in clinical psychology in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy, which she has applied to the treatment of substance use disorders, eating disorders, gambling disorder, and other disorders marked by emotion dysregulation. Dr. Cronce is licensed as a psychologist in Washington and Oregon.
