His research focuses on the intersection between sexual risk behaviors and substance use as they affect issues related to HIV/AIDS. He is currently the Principal Investigator of three federally-funded research projects: 1) Project PLUS, a National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA)-funded randomized clinical trial of an intervention using Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to improve medication adherence and reduce alcohol use among HIV seropositive (HIV+) men and women; 2) The PARTY Project, a National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA)-funded formative qualitative and quantitative longitudinal study of the contextual aspects of club drug use among heterosexual and homosexual young adults (ages 18-25); and 3) The Young Men’s Study, a NIDA-funded intervention trial to promote behavior change with young gay and bisexual men regarding their club drug use and risky sexual behaviors. He is also a Co-Investigator with colleagues at New York State Psychiatric Institute on studies focusing on methamphetamine use among gay men. Dr. Parsons is President of the Eastern Region of the Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality (SSSS) and Vice President of the Society for the Advancement of Sexual Health (SASH). He is a member of the Committee on Psychology and AIDS (COPA) of the American Psychological Association; of the Adolescent Medicine Leadership Group and of the Behavioral Leadership Group for the multi-site Adolescent Medicine Trials Network for HIV/AIDS Interventions; and of the International Association of Motivational Interviewing Trainers (IAMIT). Dr. Parsons provides MI training to HIV clinics, to medical and psychosocial providers, and to other individuals incorporating MI into their clinical work, and serves as a consultant on a number of grant-funded studies using MI to promote HIV-related behavior change.
