About Emily J Bartley

Dr. Bartley is an Assistant Professor at the University of Florida, College of Dentistry. She earned her B.A. in Psychology and M.S. in Clinical Psychology from Pittsburg State University, followed by her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Tulsa. Dr. Bartley completed her clinical internship at Duke University Medical Center, with a primary concentration in Clinical Health Psychology and subspecialty in Pain/Biofeedback. She worked as a postdoctoral fellow in the University of Florida Pain Research and Intervention Center of Excellence (PRICE) with a focus on translational pain research.

A major focus of her research efforts to date has centered on the assessment of affective modulation of pain and nociceptive processing using psychophysiological testing in patients with acute and chronic pain. Dr. Bartley’s current research interests predominantly focus on investigating the biological and psychosocial factors that impact chronic pain and how these mechanisms affect patient response to intervention. She is particularly interested in adaptive processes that foster resilience in pain, with an emphasis on the development of targeted clinical interventions that promote resilience, goal-directed behavior, and positive health.

Dr. Bartley’s work is currently supported by an R00 from the National Institute of Aging (Adaptability and Resilience in Aging Adults – ARIAA) to examine the feasibility and acceptability of a psychological resilience intervention for older adults with chronic low back pain and an R21 (Empowering the Management of Pain-Obesity-Weight through Enhanced Reward – EMPOWER) examining the feasibility and acceptability of an integrated pain and weight management intervention for adults with moderate-to-high impact low back pain. Additionally, she is the PI for PRIME (Pain Resilience and Inflammatory Marker Expression), an NIA-supported study funded by the Claude D. Pepper Older Americans Independence Center characterizing the associations between psychological resilience and inflammatory cytokines with measures of functional performance and disability in older adults with back pain.
