Dr. Wiebe's research has focused on adaptation to severe chronic medical conditions, such as end-stage renal disease and HIV infection. He is interested in individual differences in cognitive, emotional, and behavioral adaptation to chronic illness, and developing clinical interventions to improve patient adaptation and quality of life in resource-limited environments. His lab group has recently been involved in the adaptation of cognitive-behavioral therapy for depression and medication nonadherence for use among Spanish-speaking Latinos living with chronic illness. The group is also doing work aimed at understanding the role of substance use in avoidant coping among the chronically ill.
