About Our Program

Cognitive-behavior therapy has repeatedly been shown to be a highly effective form of treatment for a broad spectrum of psychiatric disorders and health concerns. Massachusetts General Hospital / Harvard Medical School prides itself on its dedication to providing state-of-the-art treatment to its patients, and therefore founded the Cognitive-Behavior Therapy Program through the Outpatient Psychiatry Department at MGH.

The program is directed by Dr. Sabine Wilhelm and is comprised of a team of 20 psychologists and interns, with program members specializing in the use of CBT for the treatment of a vast range of mental illnesses and medical issues.

The establishment of the CBT Program has enabled many highly experienced and respected psychologists to come together from various programs throughout the MGH Department of Psychiatry. Together, members collaborate on cutting-edge CBT-related research and work to provide CBT of the highest quality to patients through the MGH Outpatient Psychiatry Service.

The ongoing research is funded by several R01 grants from NIMH and other funding agencies. In addition to active clinical and research activities, the program serves an educational purpose, with training in CBT provided through the Massachusetts General Hospital / Harvard Medical School APA-approved Internship program in Clinical Psychology.
