Clinical Interests:

Personality disorders, professional boundary violations, impaired physicians, psychoanalysis, combining psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy, the mind-brain interface, and the portrayal of psychiatrists in film.

Research Interests:

I have had a long-standing interest in borderline personality disorder and have been involved in studies involving psychotherapy and hospital treatment of that condition. I have also been involved in a longitudinal study on how early attachment relationships shape the course and prognosis of Cluster B personality disorders. In addition, I have studied boundary violations among mental health professionals and physicians for many years, and I'm currently compiling data on the clinical evaluations I have done on this population.
