Current research is focused on the influence of trait and state motivational variables as related to coping, wellbeing, and health indicators for people living with chronic illness (i.e., chronic hepatitis C; HCV). In addition to quantitative methods and analyses, qualitative methods are used to focus on gaining insight into the experience of living with HCV. Issues related to social support, support at work, employment issues and the meaning attached to work for participants in the study are of interest. Cellar is also the co-director of the Center for Community and Organization Development.
