Dr. Frazier's current research areas focus on stress and coping with life transitions and developmental tasks across adulthood in an effort to maximize mental and physical health outcomes. Of specific interest is adjustment to living with chronic illness and gleaning an understanding of the processes associated with developing resilience and avenues towards successful aging. More recently, Dr. Frazier has become interested in psychosocial factors that influence body image, disordered eating, and risk of developing eating disorders in young adults. Dr. Frazier has authored over 25 articles and book chapters and her research has appeared in Psychology and Aging, Journal of Gerontology: Psychological Sciences, The Gerontologist, Experimental Aging Research, Research on Aging, International Journal of Aging and Human Development, Basic and Applied Social Psychology, and Journal of Applied Social Psychology. Dr. Frazier is the recipient of a grant from the National Institute on Aging/National Institutes of Health. Dr. Frazier is a member of the American Psychological Association's Division of Adult Development and Aging and the Division of Health Psychology, and is also a member of the Association for Psychological Sciences.
