This is a past event.
Friday, January 14 at 12:00pm to 1:00pm
Dr. Jill Ehrenreich-May is a Professor and Associate Chair for Graduate Studies in the Department of Psychology at the University of Miami. Dr. Ehrenreich-May's research is concerned with the development and evaluation of transdiagnostic programs for youth presenting with or at risk for anxiety, depression and related concerns. She operates a research clinic at the University of Miami, the Child and Adolescent Mood and Anxiety Treatment Program, which serves as a hub for training in evidence-based practices and allows for the study of mechanisms and outcomes associated with transdiagnostic treatments for youth. Her research on the Unified Protocols for Transdiagnostic Treatments of Emotional Disorders in Children and Adolescents is funded by the U.S. National Institutes of Health, foundation sources and with collaborators internationally. Dr. Ehrenreich-May is also heavily involved with practice organizations in the US, where she is the Incoming President-Elect of the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies.
