Berta J. Summers, Ph.D. is a Clinical and Research Fellow in Psychology completing her post-doctoral fellowship in the OCD and Related Disorders Program at Massachusetts General Hospital. Dr. Summers graduated valedictorian from North Carolina State University with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a minor in German, after which she spent two years conducting research at Duke University. She received her doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology at Florida State University, working with Dr. Jesse Cougle. Her clinical and research interests center around obsessive-compulsive and related disorders (OCRDs) such as OCD and body dysmorphic disorder (BDD). Specifically, her work focuses on cognitive bias modification, problematic safety behaviors, ‘not just right’ experiences, and broad factors influencing etiology and treatment outcome across these illnesses. Further, Dr. Summers is interested in contributing to the current mobile health (mhealth) initiative and harnessing technology (e.g., cell phone applications, virtual reality) to improve the understanding and treatment of OCRDs. In September of 2018, she received a foundational grant from the International OCD Foundation to develop and test a novel virtual reality program for eliciting and assessing maladaptive interpretation biases in BDD. She anticipates the findings of this study will serve as pilot data for a larger clinical trial testing the efficacy of virtual reality-assisted cognitive bias modification training for BDD.
