Moser received her doctorate from the University of Delaware and completed her predoctoral clinical internship at the Alfred I. DuPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Delaware. During this internship, she received specialized training in pediatric psychology, the assessment and treatment of children with chronic medical illnesses and children who experience medical symptoms with no known medical etiologies. Subsequently, Moser held a postdoctoral position at The Brown Psychology Training Consortium in the Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior at Brown University. She worked in the Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology at Hasbro Children’s Hospital, where she focused her practice and research on the psychological treatment of children with gastroenterology symptoms. During this fellowship, Moser also received training at a nationally renowned center for childhood anxiety disorders. She supervises clinical psychology graduate students who work in the clinic and occasionally teaches undergraduate courses. Moser worked with graduate students to design a group-based curriculum for middle school students who have experienced negative peer interactions (Getting Back up Again), which is now offered annually through the clinic. Moser maintains an active private practice in the community where she provides cognitive-behavioral, evidence-based services to children with a broad range of emotional and behavioral problems. She continues to specialize in pediatric psychology and the treatment of child anxiety disorders.

Integrating behavioral health services into pediatric gastroenterology: A model of an integrated health care program

Clinical Practice in Pediatric Psychology

Moser, Natalie L.,Plante, Wendy A.,LeLeiko, Neal S.,Lobato, Debra J.

2014 Integration of behavioral health services into pediatric health care is critical to optimal patient care, but logistic and financial barriers often prevent integration. We describe an integrated clinical, research, and training program bringing pediatric psychologists into a hospital-based pediatric gastroenterology clinic. Almost 300 pediatric patients with gastroenterology problems were seen by pediatric psychologists over the first 31 months. The 3 most common gastroenterology presentations included encopresis, abdominal pain, and irritable bowel syndrome. One third of the patients followed by psychologists were in therapy for less than 1 month and an additional third were seen for between 1 and 4 months, supporting a short-term model of care. Financial arrangements, clinical service reimbursement data, and research and training integration are described. Demonstrations of feasibility and acceptance of psychology services integrated into pediatric care are crucial for new models of health care delivery that more closely align with our biopsychosocial models of health.
