Grand Rounds at MSPP:

Treating Complex Patients


Friday, June 15, 2012 | 9:00 am – 12:00 pm at MSPP


In the rapid pace of service delivery in challenging economic times, there is not enough opportunity to slow down and deeply explore the process of an effective psychotherapeutic relationship and treatment. MSPP is now offering periodic case conferences with senior clinicians from different theoretical perspectives reflecting on a single case. In this three hour CE format, a case will be presented and discussed by the treating clinician and by senior colleagues. Please join us for our first in this series with a case presented by Anne Waters, PsyD of the MSPP faculty and discussed by Steven Cooper, PhD, Alexandra Harrison, MD and Edmund C. Neuhaus, PhD, ABPP.

Edmund C. Neuhaus, PhD, ABPP, has, for two decades, designed CBT training curricula and trained hundreds of psychology interns, post-doctoral fellows, psychiatry residents, and graduate students. He is an Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychology at the Harvard Medical School and former Co-Director of Psychology Training at McLean Hospital. Dr. Neuhaus directed McLean’s Behavioral Health Partial Hospital Program for many years, which treats patients with mood, anxiety, and personality disorders, with an additional specialty program for borderline personality disorder. In his capacity as Director, Dr. Neuhaus designed flexible group therapy protocols that distill the best of evidence-based research to meet the needs of a heterogeneous patient population. He also has developed comprehensive programming for patients with borderline personality disorder with co-morbid mood and anxiety disorders. Currently, Dr. Neuhaus’ and his research colleagues at McLean are exploring the process of CBT skills acquisition to determine the extent to which skills are mediators of symptom reduction and functional improvement. Early results are promising, indicating that skill acquisition may be an important component of recovery from psychiatric illness. Dr. Neuhaus earned his PhD in Clinical Psychology from Clark University in Worcester, MA. He received his pre- and post-doctoral psychology training at McLean Hospital and Harvard Medical School. He began as a mental health worker at McLean on an inpatient unit, then as part of his doctoral training he became a psychology intern in 1987. He states: “I started at the bottom and learned from the best teachers along the way. While I have worked at McLean for the better part of 20 years, I’ve had numerous positions in a wide range of programs—inpatient, outpatient, partial hospital, residential, administrative, research, and of course teaching.”
