Mike Bordieri, Ph.D.

Dr. Mike Bordieri

 

My research and clinical interests lie in developing interventions designed to decrease human suffering and increase our engagement in vital and valued living. In particular, I am interested in the concept of psychological flexibility and how it might help inform our treatment of psychological difficulties, broadly defined. Under this umbrella I conduct translational research linking acceptance and mindfulness treatment components to basic behavioral processes.

I welcome undergraduate and graduate students who are interested (or think that they might be interested) in this area to stop by my office and have a conversation. Opportunities for student engagement in research range from helping out with my existing projects as a research assistant to designing and conducting original research projects under my supervision and mentorship. In addition to the research listed in my vitae, here are some examples of student research projects that I have directed:

  • Awareness of mental health resources on campus
  • Benefits and risks of tablet devices in Applied Behavior Analysis
  • Social support and mental health stigma
  • The relationship between goal specificity and magical thinking
  • Examining psychological flexibility, athletic identity, and stigma within sport culture
  • Creativity, psychopathology, and psychological flexibility
  • The effects of individualistic and collectivistic orientations on mental health
