Bio
I am Professor of Psychology at the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Boston University where I direct the Psychotherapy and Emotion Research Laboratory, www.bostonanxiety.org. My research focuses on the mechanism of treatment change, translating discoveries from neuroscience into clinical applications, emotions, and cultural expressions of psychopathology. I was the president of Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies and of the International Association for Cognitive Psychotherapy. I am currently the editor in chief of Cognitive Therapy and Research. I have published more than 300 scientific articles and more than 20 books. I am a Highly Cited Researcher.
I study emotional disorders, such as anxiety and mood disorders. I have been identified as one of the foremost experts in cognitive behavioral therapies. My primary research focus has been to understand treatment mechanisms and to develop strategies to further enhance these treatments, including strategies based in neuroscience.
I do not have a private practice. Instead, I conduct psychotherapy research. Most of this research is funded through the National Institutes of Health. If you are interested in free treatment, please call 617-358-2250 or visit bostonanxiety.org/currentresearch
