  2. Research, Clinical, and Teaching Contributions

    • narrative report
      •  

        My clinical work has included serving as associate medical director of The Pavilion unit at McLean Hospital, where I directed a multidisciplinary team in evaluation and treatment of patients with severe and complex psychiatric disorders. My responsibilities as director of the treatment team included psychopharmacologic management, coordination of all aspects of the evaluation and therapy process, consultation with relevant clinical experts and the patient's outside treaters, leadership of a treatment conference at the conclusion of the patient's stay at the Pavilion, and production of an in-depth report on the patient's work-up and clinical course at the Pavilion. Since November 2010, I have been in full-time outpatient private practice in Belmont, MA. My outpatient work focuses on psychotherapy and psychopharmacologic management of adults with a wide range of mood, anxiety, psychotic, substance abuse, eating, and personality disorders. I have a particular interest in combined psychotherapy and medication treatment for young adults with mood, anxiety, and personality disorders (including major depression, bipolar disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, and borderline personality disorder).

        My research focuses on medical/psychiatric ethics and the complex relationship between psychological and neuroscientific approaches in philosophy and psychiatry. I have lectured and published numerous articles on these topics, on related issues in psychiatric diagnosis, and on applications of these ideas to clinical ethics. In 2001-02, I was a Faculty Fellow in the Harvard University Center for Ethics and the Professions (now the Edmond J. Safra Foundation Center for Ethics), where I researched, lectured, and wrote on these topics; in 2002-03, I was awarded an APA/Wyeth-Ayerst M.D./Ph.D. Psychiatric Research Fellowship to pursue this work. Over the years since then, I have continued to deepen my understanding and research activity in these areas. In numerous published articles, I have considered and advocated for the role of clinical pragmatism in psychiatric diagnosis, treatment, research, and education. A book I authored on this topic was published by The MIT Press in March 2006 (Healing Psychiatry: Bridging the Science/Humanism Divide). The book has been reviewed in American Journal of Bioethics, American Journal of Psychiatry, Annals of Clinical Psychiatry, Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic, Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, Journal of the American Medical Association, Journal of Mental Health, Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease, Psychological Medicine, Scientific American, and elsewhere.
