RETIRED/EMERITUS as of 2008. Dr. Jean M. Williams is Professor of Clinical Psychology at the University of Arizona. Dr. Williams' training and research interests fall within the realm of psychology of sport and exercise. Her research has focused on the areas of psychology of injury, psychology of excellence, group dynamics and productivity, and exercise and mental health. Specific interests include research questions such as how stress puts individuals at greater risk of injury and the role of coping resources in the stress-injury relationship, whether psychological states (e.g., anciently confidence) influence perception and performance, how exercise improves mental health, and whether group cohesion, member identifiability, and leader behaviors influence productivity, exercise behavior, and member satisfaction. Dr. Williams' currently teaches lower division course on psychology of human performance which emphasizes psychological theories, research and intervention strategies for enhancing performance and personal growth, and also teaches a graduate/upper division course on the relationship of stress and coping to health and performance.
