Biography

Adam Reid, M.S., is a graduate student at the University of Florida with a particular interest in pediatric and adult Anxiety Disorders. He obtained his Bachelors of Science from the University of Florida, where he graduated in three years with highest honors. Mr. Reid immediately entered the Clinical and Health Psychology Doctoral Program at the University of Florida. There he completed his M.S. in Clinical and Health Psychology and currently is a doctoral candidate under the mentorship of Dr. Gary Geffken and co-mentorship of Dr. Joseph McNamara. He also is currently pursuing a M.S. in Epidemiology under the mentorship of Dr. Catherine Striley.

Research Focus

Mr. Reid’s primary research focus relates to investigating factors that impact treatment outcome, as well as the development of potential augmentation strategies, for pediatric and adult Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. He cofounded and is leading data collection for the Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder Treatment Response Analysis of Change (OCD-TRAC) research program, which will address some of the most pressing research questions regarding how cognitive, temperament, family, biological and process related factors impact treatment outcome for pediatric OCD. From this dataset, Mr. Reid will conduct the first component analysis of homework assigned during treatment of pediatric OCD to provide insight into how clinicians can optimally design exposure challenges for homework and improve treatment outcome. Mr. Reid has a secondary research interest in increasing access of care to the underserved and the utilization of innovative methods to study treatment outcome, such as higher statistical growth modeling.

Clinical Focus

Mr. Reid’s primary clinical focus involves implementing first-line behavioral treatments for kids and adults with Anxiety Disorders, Trauma and Stress Related Disorders, and Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders. He is a senior student clinician at the University of Florida OCD Program in the Department of Psychiatry and enjoys integrating his research into his clinical work, such as utilizing evidenced based augmentation strategies for treatment refractory cases. Echoing one his secondary research interest, Mr. Reid has an interest in providing psychological care to the underserved. He served 2.5 years as the student director for Free Therapy Night, a specialty clinic integrated within a network of primary care clinics associated with the University of Florida College of Medicine Equal Access Clinics.
