Dr. Gamble's research and training interests focus on improving care for individuals with co-occurring substance use disorders and depression – a population at high risk for suicide and suicide attempts. With funding from a NIAAA Career Development Award, she recently completed a randomized controlled trial investigating the adjunctive effects of Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) among depressed, alcohol dependent women in outpatient chemical dependency treatment. Dr. Gamble provides training and supervision in IPT to URMC Psychiatry residents and interns. As part of the URMC Dean's Teaching Fellowship, she has also developed a co-occurring disorders training curriculum based on the SBIRT (Screening, Brief Intervention, Referral to Treatment) model. Dr. Gamble provides mentorship in areas related to program evaluation, behavioral treatment research, gender-focused interventions, and treatments for co-occurring substance use disorders and depression.
