Dr. Tabri is the Director of the Mental Health and Addictions Laboratory and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada.
Dr. Tabri’s research explores how different transdiagnostic factors (e.g., overvalued ideation, perfectionism, and impulsivity) may function together to proliferate and maintain engagement in various health-compromising behaviors (e.g., disordered eating and gambling). The ultimate aim of this line of research is to enhance the prevention, assessment, and treatment protocols of various mental health disorders.
Dr. Tabri also researches the mental health and well-being implications of group membership. This research integrates social identity theory with theories from clinical and health psychology to understand how group-related factors (e.g., perceived intergroup threat, group-based emotions, and social identification) affect the mental health and well-being of group members. The goal is to develop an integrative framework of how group membership may affect our mental health and well-being.
