Eric Moody, PhD is Assistant Professor of Psychiatry, received his doctorate in social psychology and developmental cognitive neuroscience from the University of Denver, and did a post-doctoral fellowship (NIH F32, 2008-2011) in autism assessment and public health/epidemiology at the University of Colorado Denver Anschutz Medical Campus. He comes to JFK Partners from National Jewish Health where he was a data analyst studying the impact of psycho-social factors on health outcomes.
Dr. Moody is currently the co-principal investigator on a grant that is developing and testing a parent based mentoring program to improve well-being in families who have children newly diagnosed with autism. He is also the Study Coordinator for the Study to Explore Early Development, the largest study of its kind exploring the causes of autism. He also directs the JFK Partners Spirituality Initiative which is exploring how to better serve the spiritual needs of children and families of those with developmental disabilities.
Dr. Moody's research interests include uncovering the basic mechanisms of social impairment in autism by using psychophysiological methods (e.g., elecromyography), exploring novel community based interventions for those with autism, and using observational methods better understand the causes of autism.
