Dr. Foa is an internationally renowned authority on the psychopathology and treatment of anxiety. Her commitment to delineating etiological frameworks and targeted treatment has been highly influential. She is one of the leading experts in the areas of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and phobias.

Dr. Foa developed a therapy, prolonged exposure therapy, to treat post-traumatic stress disorder. Prolonged exposure therapy involves recounting the trauma and is for adult victims of sexual assault.
