Health Communication, Interpersonal Communication, Computer-Mediated Communication
Kevin's research focuses on health communication, specifically adolescent substance abuse prevention. He has been working with Dr. Catherine Martin from UK's Department of Psychiatry to conduct interviews with child psychiatrists and develop a national survey to explore their attitudes and concerns about discussing substance abuse prevention with their patients. Kevin's ultimate goal is to develop a theory-based intervention that encourages and prepares psychiatrists to competently discuss substance abuse prevention with their adolescent patients. He also studies how emerging technology is used to discuss health behavior.
