Danielle Lindner

Assistant Professor of Psychology

Danielle Lindner earned her Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the University of Central Florida in 2014 after completing her predoctoral internship at James A. Haley Veterans Hospital in Tampa, Florida. Her clinical interests include body image and eating disorders, health behavior change, and mindfulness-based interventions. Lindner's primary research interests lie within the area of body image, eating disorders and obesity. Her research integrating objectification theory and social comparison theory to explain the development of body image disturbance and disordered eating was recognized by the Obesity and Eating Disorders Special Interest Group of the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies. Lindner is excited to continue studying body image at Stetson University and looks forward to mentoring undergraduate students in research.
