Rick Grieve, Ph. D.

Professor of Psychology

I am a full professor in the Department of Psychology. I teach classes in both the MA Clinical and Doctor of Psychology in Applied Psychology programs. My research interests lie in the area of eating disorders, and right now I am investigating men's eating disorders, especially muscle dysmorphia. What is muscle dysmorphia, you ask? I'm glad you did. Think anorexia nervosa, but with large men who think they are too small. I am also interested in sport fan behaviors. Sport fandom encompasses the good, the bad, and the ugly of what happens when people are attached to sport teams. I am also interested in the causes and correlates of attachment to sport teams. I have studies that I am running in both areas.

I coordinate the Clinical and Applied Research (CAR) Group. This is a group of graduate and undergraduate students who are interested in conducting research in either one of the above-mentioned areas.

Just a quick note if you have read this far: the Sport Psychology Forum is having its 17th Annual gathering in the spring of 2021 in Gary Ransdell Hall (date to be determined). You are welcome to join us!
