Judith Prochaska, Ph.D., M.P.H.
Judith Prochaska, Ph.D., M.P.H. is an Associate Professor in Residence in the UCSF Department of Psychiatry. Her research focuses on developing effective treatments for tobacco dependence and other leading health risk factors with a specific focus on populations with co-occurring disorders. Current studies include: (1) a NIDA-funded K23 career development award to evaluate extended treatment for tobacco dependence initiated in an inpatient psychiatric setting; (2) a NIMH-funded R01 comparing brief versus extended tobacco cessation interventions initiated in inpatient psychiatry; (3) a TRDRP-funded project to develop and evaluate a tobacco cessation curriculum for psychiatry residency training programs; and (4) a NIDA-funded clinical trial evaluating a tobacco cessation intervention for adolescents and young adults recruited from outpatient mental health settings. The interventions are comprehensive combining motivational and cognitive behavioral approaches with pharmacotherapy.

Another line of research interest for Dr. Prochaska focuses on interventions addressing multiple risk behaviors. Dr. Prochaska currently mentors two postdoctoral fellows in the NIDA Postdoctoral Traineeship in Drug Abuse Treatment and Services Research. In 2007, Dr. Prochaska received the Society for Research on Nicotine and Tobacco (SRNT) Jarvik-Russell Young Investigator Award and in 2010 was named the NIDA Division of Clinical Neuroscience
