I am a social/health psychologist who has been on the Vanderbilt faculty since 1971. Most of my work has centered around adaptation to chronic illness, with a particular interest in individual differences that predict health behaviors and health status. I am most well known as one of the developers of the Multidimensional Health Locus of Control scales, a group of measures that are used throughout the world.
