E21: Sargent Assistant Professor on Loneliness and Isolation

By Karen Jacobs

This episode provides a conversation with Sargent Assistant Professor and clinical psychologist Dan Fulford. They discussed the research Approach Motivation & Participation (AMP) lab does and advice on the usage of digital technologies during the pandemic. About Boston University Approach Motivation Participation Lab: Work in the AMP (/amp/, ampere) Lab focuses on the intersection of motivation and social processes, and how variations in the experience and expression of these phenomena contribute to problems of everyday living (e.g., psychopathology). We use mobile technology (mostly smartphones) to measure these constructs in the context of daily life, and then translate the knowledge we gain into digital interventions (also mostly using smartphones). The moderator of the podcast is Dr. Karen Jacobs (kjacobs@bu.edu), who is the Associate Dean, Digital Learning and Innovation, a Clinical Professor and the Program Director for the on-line post-professional doctorate in the occupational therapy program at Sargent College. Marial Williams (marialw@bu.edu), a Boston University entry-level occupational therapy doctoral student, composed the music for the podcast.
