Dr. Bilsky received her Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the University of Arkansas in 2019. She completed her clinical internship at the Oklahoma Health Sciences Center/OKC VA Consortium. Dr. Bilsky is currently an Assistant Professor in the Clinical Psychology program at the University of Mississippi. Her research is focused on understanding familial processes that increase risk for parent and adolescent psychopathology and substance use. Specifically, she integrates clinical and developmental science to examine factors that increase risk for the development and maintenance of disorders characterized by anxious arousal (e.g., panic disorder, PTSD) and substance misuse (e.g., cigarette smoking, alcohol use). Her research program spans several stages of development (i.e., childhood, adolescence, and adulthood) although the primary focus of her work is the development and maintenance of these issues among adolescents and their parents.
