  • Belinda Borelli, PhD

  • Belinda Borrelli, PhD, is a professor of psychiatry and human behavior at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University and is the director of the Program in Nicotine and Tobacco, Centers for Behavioral and Preventive Medicine at The Miriam Hospital. She is a clinical psychologist specializing in motivating behavior change and has over 75 peer-reviewed publications and book chapters. She has had numerous NIH grants (R01s) focusing on motivating smoking cessation among medical populations and on changes in risk perception during teachable moments. She is co-investigator on numerous grants on motivating behavior change across diverse areas (smoking cessation, second hand smoke reduction, medication adherence, asthma, sleep apnea, obesity and oral health) and populations (e.g., older adults, urban adolescents, Latinos, Native-Americans, smokers with mobility impairments).

    Borrelli has received several awards for her research and has given over 60 invited lectures at national and international meetings and events. She was formerly the associate editor of the most cited journal in psychology (Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology), and is currently the associate editor of Health Psychology, and assistant editor of Addiction. She has served as a member of a scientific grant review committee at the National Institutes of Health. Borrelli served as co-chair of an NIH committee that was chartered to develop guidelines for treatment fidelity for health behavior change trials, which are viewed as supplementary to CONSORT and are published in major journals.

    Borrelli is a motivational interviewing trainer and has trained hundreds of physicians, nurses, medical residents, medical students and psychology interns in motivational interviewing techniques for health behavior change, both nationally and internationally.

    Dates: 2006 - 2010

    Sustaining Cessation in Parents Of Kids With Asthma

    A renewal of our prior NHLBI grant, "Motivating the Parents of Kids with Asthma to Quit Smoking," this study compared two nurse-delivered home-based smoking cessation interventions for low-income caregivers of children receiving asthma treatment: one that focused on augmenting risk perception through the provision of biomarker feedback (PAM), and one that focused on building self-efficacy using the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality guidelines (BAM). PAM achieved significantly greater quit rates than BAM at a 2 month follow-up, but both groups had high relapse rates by 6-months. The first aim of the current study utilized our previously demonstrated smoking cessation intervention (PAM) to examine the cognitive, affective, and behavioral processes hypothesized to underlie the teachable moment in smokers with kids who had a recent asthma exacerbation vs. smokers with healthy kids. The second aim attempts to sustain the excellent short-term quit rates we found in our first study by testing whether supplementing PAM with a telephone-based intervention improves and sustains quitting more than PAM plus contact control in the parents of kids with asthma. The telephone counseling is theory-based, targeting the constructs associated with quitting in our first study (perceived risk, precaution effectiveness, and self-efficacy). Our primary outcomes of interest are: point prevalence abstinence, Environmental Tobacco Smoke (ETS) reduction, asthma morbidity, and health care utilization. We will also examine mediators and moderators.
