Douglas W. Woods
Ph.D., Western Michigan University, 1999
I am interested in assessing and treating tic disorders, trichotillomania, and other OCD-spectrum disorders in children and adults. I have additional interests in behavior therapy as applied to childhood feeding problems, oppositional/conduct problems, and social rejection. I also teach a graduate course on empirically supported interventions. More information about me and the Behavior Therapy Research Lab can be found at: people.uwm.edu/dwoods
