Who We Are
The CDBSC started in 2017 as a working group of psychologists with an interest in supporting those impacted by celiac disease through behavioral health interventions.
With over 30 psychologists across two countries, the CDBSC has entered a new phase to help further its mission by welcoming multidisciplinary providers and researchers.
We believe that in working together across disciplines, more can be understood about the behavioral health impacts and treatments needed for those with celiac disease and their families.

Support the advancement of clinical and research practices designed to optimize the biopsychosocial well-being of individuals with celiac disease and their families through the behavioral sciences.
To accomplish this, the CDBSC offers education to trainees and professionals across institutions, facilitates networking and collaborative endeavors among members of the Consortium, seeks funding opportunities for activities and projects, and promotes awareness of the importance of behavioral science in celiac disease.
It is well-established that individuals with celiac disease are at risk for decreased quality of life in response to following a medically prescribed gluten-free diet.
The Consortium uses a biopsychosocial framework to advance behavioral health care in celiac disease.
