The Program embodies a Clinical Science Model. Clinical training is based on empirically-supported methods and students are taught to fully integrate research training and clinical work. Faculty conduct research across children and adults in the areas of addiction, ADHD, anxiety, depression, HIV-risk behavior, personality disorders, and schizophrenia, with the focus ranging from basic experimental psychopathology to clinical assessment and treatment development and evaluation. The Clinical Program benefits from unique collaborations with area institutions including the Children’s National Medical Center, the University of Maryland School of Medicine, the Maryland Psychiatric Research Center, the Baltimore VA Mental Illness Research Education Clinical Center, and the Salvation Army Harbor Light Residential Drug Treatment Center. The Clinical Program receives extensive grant funding from NIMH and NIDA and was ranked 17th in the nation in a 2007 study of Faculty Productivity appearing in the Journal of Clinical Psychology.
