About Daniel Hall, PhD

I am an Assistant Professor of Psychology in the Department of Psychiatry. My primary interests are uncertainty and stress in illness, with a focus on mind-body interventions and mechanisms. I study and teach patients evidence-based practices, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness meditation, and training in the relaxation response. 

Most of my clinical work is with adults who are coping with chronic or life-threatening illness (e.g., cancer) as well as adults who are seeking to change health behaviors (e.g., treating insomnia, quitting smoking).

I primarily collaborate with the following teams and services:

- MGH Mongan Institute, Health Policy Research Center
- MGH Behavioral Medicine Program
- MGH Benson-Henry Institute for Mind-Body Medicine
- MGH Cancer Center, CORE and Survivorship Program
