Biography


Marci Gleason primary research falls into two domains: dyadic support processes and aging and personality. Her first area of work explores how reciprocal support transactions influence individuals mood and relationship functioning using intensive longitudinal designs.  Currently she is moving her study of support into the context of cancer treatment in order to understand the role of support in couples and families coping with a chronic disease.  Her second area of work focuses on how personality disorders present across the lifespan and how life transitions, such as retirement, may interact with individuals' personality to impact well-being.  Her recently published work has been published in Patient Education and Counseling, Personal Relationships, Journal of Family Theory & Review, and the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.
