Research Interests

The Depression Treatment and Research Program (DTRP) is part of the Department of Psychology at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. The DTRP is dedicated to improving the lives of people suffering from depression through innovative research and clinical services. Specifically, our research focuses on cognitive and motivational processes in depression and how different types of therapy can help people recover.

The director of the DTRP lab is Dr. Kari M. Eddington. Dr. Eddington is an Associate Professor and Licensed Clinical Psychologist in UNCG’s Department of Psychology. She received her Ph.D. from Indiana University and completed a clinical internship at the University Of Wisconsin Department of Psychiatry. Dr. Eddington’s research has been supported by grant funding from NIMH and involves collaboration with other researchers both within and outside of UNCG. You can follow her research activities by visiting her profile on ResearchGate or on Google Scholar.
