About Carolyn Becker

Dr. Becker is a licensed clinical psychologist who specializes in the treatment and prevention of eating disorders, and the use of exposure therapy to treat posttraumatic stress disorder and other anxiety disorders.
The primary focus of her teaching, research, and clinical work is the implementation of scientifically supported prevention and treatment interventions in clinical and real world settings. Dr. Becker teaches a range of courses related to clinical psychology, and regularly involves Trinity psychology students as research collaborators. In 2012, Dr. Becker was awarded the Z.T. Scott Faculty Fellowship for excellence in teaching and advising.
Dr. Becker has systematically collaborated with the local sororities at Trinity University in studying strategies to improve body image and prevent eating disorders. One extension of this work has been the development of the United Kingdom-based Succeed: Body Image Program, which is now being deployed nationally in the UK by the Succeed Foundation. In addition, Dr. Becker has partnered with the Department of Athletics in the creation of the Female Athlete Body Project. This research has been funded by two grants from the National Institute of Health.
