Introduction to Research in the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry

The Child and Adolescent Division focuses on Applied Research. All of the core and adjunct faculty are practicing clinicians, with deep understanding of their research areas. Topics range from investigations of the effectiveness of treatments for specific disorders, to the development of comprehensive measurement tools, to service system issues. One of the strengths of the Division is its focus on collaboration, and researchers collaborate with partners not only from Western and local service providers, but also from universities and organizations around the world. Dr. Jeff Carter serves as the Research Coordinator for the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.
