Professional Interests

Kelsey Traeger is an interventionist on the Augmenting Cognitive Training in Older Adults (ACT) study. She graduated cum laude from the University of Florida in 2017 with a B.S. in Psychology and a minor in Disabilities in Society. As an undergraduate she examined response resurgence during differential reinforcement of alternative behavior (DRA) and the efficacy of variations to the standard functional analysis in Dr. Brian Iwata’s lab. She also studied the factors impacting treatment outcomes during cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for patients with anxiety-related disorders in Dr. Joseph McNamara’s lab. She ultimately hopes to pursue a PhD in Social Work investigating the role that community organizations play in mental health and how to better integrate those organizations.
