About Our Care Team

The Division's multidisciplinary research team includes psychiatrists and psychologists, as well as people with backgrounds in human biology, neuroscience, computer science, electrical engineering and informatics.

Child Psychiatrist

A psychiatrist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental and behavioral disorders. It takes many years of education and training to become a psychiatrist: He or she must graduate from college and then medical school, and go on to complete four years of residency training in the field of psychiatry. Many psychiatrists undergo additional training so that they can further specialize in such areas as child and adolescent psychiatry, geriatric psychiatry, forensic psychiatry, psychopharmacology, and/or psychoanalysis. This extensive medical training enables the psychiatrist to understand the body's functions and the complex relationship between emotional illness and other medical illnesses.

Child Psychologists

A clinical child psychologist is a licensed mental health professional (Ph.D. or Psy.D.) who specializes in the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders. Their training prepares them to treat children either individually, as part of and involving the family unit, and/or in a group setting. Psychologists also conduct cognitive, academic and personality testing.

Social Workers

A licensed clinical social worker is a licensed mental health professional (LCSW) who specializes in the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders. Their training prepares them to treat children, adolescents, and young adults either individually, as part of and involving the family unit and/or in a group setting. LCSWs work cross-culturally from the theoretical perspective of the person in the environment (PIE) and will also address life domain challenges as part of supporting the individual and family in achieving their goals. MSWs (Master’s in Social Work) are master’s level clinicians who can provide these services under the supervision of an LCSW.
