Publication Overview

Dr. Williams has published over 150 peer-reviewed journal articles and over 40 book chapters, as well as numerous editorials, commentaries, and scientific reports. This page contains most of Dr. Williams' publications which have appeared in peer-reviewed scientific journals and edited volumes. It also includes some recent technical reports and commentaries. Where available, these can be downloaded as PDFs.

These works have an emphasis on psychopathology and cultural experiences. Among these are papers focused on multiple ethnic groups (69), Black people (45), primarily White samples (26), Black/White differences (17), Hispanic Americans (5), and Asian groups (5), and Indigenous people (1). Over one-hundred (102) are empirical, with over three-quarters (78%) of these using data collected by Dr. Williams and her lab. Primary topics include OCD and related disorders (68), trauma (39), anxiety (21), depression (10), and substance use disorders (10). Twenty-two (22) are focused on biomedical treatment approaches, and 24 are psychometric studies. She also has written four books, the most recent of which is focused on microaggressions in clinical care. She has an additional book under contract with APA.
