Congratulations to Sarah Schell and collaborators Iulia Banica, Dr. Anna Weinberg, and Dr. Racine, who investigated associations between behavioral responses to social threat and core ED symptoms using a behavioral paradigm. Their findings have been published in the International Journal of Eating Disorders!

Vittoria Trolio, Aiden Mehak, Sarah Schell, and Dr. Racine were the first to investigate and incorporate 'feeling fat' into the interpersonal psychotherapy model of eating disorders using a serial-mediation approach. Their findings were accepted for publication in Appetite! Congratulations!

Congratulations to Aiden Mehak for receiving a federal CIHR Doctoral Award and to Alexia Miller for receiving a federal SSHRC Doctoral Award!

Congratulations to Vittoria Trolio for her acceptance to McGill University's Clinical Psychology Graduate Program and her federal SSHRC (Canada Graduate Scholarships-Master's Program) funding award! We look forward to having her stay on our team!

Exciting news! Dr. Racine was promoted from Assistant Professor to Associate Professor and was awarded tenure! Congratulations,
Dr. Racine!

Congratulations to Aiden Mehak for her accepted submission to the International Journal of Eating Disorder's "An Idea Worth Researching"! Aiden calls for the need of greater empirical research and multi-method measurements for the subjective experience of 'feeling fat', and describes the importance of doing so for advancing research of eating pathology.

Several of our lab members (including our post-doctoral fellow, graduate students, and undergraduate students) will be presenting PDFs of their posters (and a symposium presentation) VIRTUALLY at the CPA 2020 Annual National Convention! Go team!

Dr. Racine, Sarah Schell and collaborator Kelsey Hagan were the first to uncover the latent structure of nonhomeostatic eating! Their findings have just been published in Psychological Assessment! Congratulations!

Sarah Schell, alum Sarah Brassard, and Dr. Racine examined how high risk personality traits are indirectly associated with binge eating via learned expectancies about the outcome of eating. Their findings have just been published in Appetite! Congratulations!
