Smoking Cessation

Quitting smoking can be a challenge physiologically as well as behaviorally.

Dr. Nora Keenan is a health psychologist who was trained at the University of Minnesota and currently holds a position as a postdoctoral fellow in Women's Health at the Milwaukee VA Medical Center. At the Milwaukee VAMC, Dr. Keenan co-facilitates the Smoking Cessation Clinic. Her research focuses on psychological factors that impact people's health behavior decisions, particularly how negative emotions and stress – as well as different strategies for emotion regulation – influence health behaviors such as smoking, drinking, and eating.

In the following Podcast, Dr. Keenan provides practical behavioral strategies for smoking cessation with an accompanying handout.
