The lab's PI provides training for individualized intervention (e.g. population-based interventions.)
The PI has expertise in measurement of health behavior (e.g. stress behavior, drinking behavior, physical activity, smoking behavior), measurement development (e.g. benefit of physical activity), and is certified in SOFIT.
Training in motivational interviewing can be provided by the lab's PI (e.g. one-to-one behavioral change counseling)
