She has presented and published peer review journal articles and book chapters in the US and abroad on topics regarding addiction, complex trauma and dissociation, self-mutilation and the creative arts therapies. In 1999, her phenomenological research study explored the experiences of dissociative disordered women who self-mutilate. Her data included poetry and a visual art based component. One case study from this work was published by UCLA in the Journal of Arts in Psychotherapy. Her theory regarding the use of the creative arts therapies for those struggling with addiction and complex trauma was published by Haworth Press in The Psychology of Trauma and Addiction. This book chapter was dually published in the Journal of Chemical Dependency that same year. Later, Dr. Scott's chapter was translated and published in the Czech Republic. Dr. Scott has co-authored two chapters in a book for Oxford University Press on the topic of Integrative Addiction Therapies. This book will be part of the Andrew Weil, MD library series and will be released in September 2018.
