Dr. Carleton is actively involved in clinical and experimental research, with his interests including the biopsychosocial measurement, assessment, and treatments of anxiety, mood, and somatic disorders, focusing on transdiagnostics, fundamental cognitions (i.e., lower-order factors such as intolerance of uncertainty), and shared emergent properties (i.e., higher-order factors such as extraversion). He enjoys teaching and supervision of undergraduate and graduate students, continues to work closely with the AIBL and Dr. Asmundson, and maintains a small private practice for adults who have anxiety and related disorders, particularly pain and posttraumatic stress.
