Dr. Corinne Cather is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at Harvard Medical School and the Director of Psychology Services for the Schizophrenia Clinical and Research Program at the Massachusetts General Hospital Schizophrenia Program in Boston. Dr. Cather earned her undergraduate degree in biopsychology at Hamilton College in Clinton, NY and her doctorate in clinical psychology from Rutgers University where she received specialized training in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and behavioral medicine. She completed an internship at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and joined the Schizophrenia Clinical and Research Program as a post-doctoral fellow in 1999.
She has extensive experience as a clinician-researcher with first episode/early psychosis as well as with chronic schizophrenia and she has developed an international reputation as one of the few practitioners in the US to study and train in cognitive behavioral therapy in schizophrenia. She served as a consultant on the NIMH RAISE project designed to disseminate training in state-of-the-art multi-component first episode treatment and was responsible for developing the individual and family intervention manuals around preventing and responding to weight gain and smoking cessation for this project.
In the morning, participants will learn about what neuroscience and brain development are telling us about schizophrenia. The afternoon will feature a panel of families speaking about their experience with first episode psychosis, as well as presentations focusing on family-based and mentalization approaches to treatment. We will share our vision of modern psychiatric treatment that is preventive, patient-centered and oriented towards recovery and physical health.
