About Joy Gabrielli

Dr. Joy Gabrielli specializes in the treatment of adolescents and families. She is trained in trauma-focused intervention that is both individual- and family-based. She also has experience with reduction of health risk behaviors in youth.

Dr. Gabrielli’s program of research centers on the identification of modifiable environmental risk factors for adolescent health risk behaviors (e.g., substance use) that can be targeting for intervention and prevention efforts. She also has a specific interest in working with understudied and high-risk populations in this area, with a particular emphasis on youth in foster care. Following her work at the Center for Technology and Behavioral Health at Dartmouth, she developed an interest in applications of digital technologies to address the prevention and treatment needs of youth clinical populations. Dr. Gabrielli has also created a framework for a media literacy preventative intervention for parents (T.E.C.H. Parenting) to reduce youth risk for initiation of health risk behaviors.

Research Profile

The Youth Risk and Resilience Lab is directed by Joy Gabrielli, Ph.D. It is housed in the Department of Clinical and Health Psychology at the University of Florida. Graduate students in the lab work toward doctorate degrees that lead to careers as clinical child psychologists and researchers.

We seek to improve understanding of factors (both environmental and individual) that contribute to youth trajectories of risk and resilience as they progress in development towards adulthood. Within this aim, we look to employ novel technologies and methodologies to promote research engagement and data capture and improve strategies for prevention and intervention efforts. Further, we actively seek to conduct research that benefits underserved and underrepresented youth populations.
