BC Children's Hospital Research Institute is pleased to congratulate the recipients of the 2018 Outstanding Achievement Awards and the 2018 BCCHR Studentships and Fellowships.
As clinical head of the Mood and Anxiety Disorders Clinic at BC’s Children’s Hospital, I have engaged in research and consultation on psychopharmacological and cognitive-behavioral treatment of mood and anxiety disorders in young people. I provide consultation services to community mental health, schools and government regarding evidence-based prevention, early intervention and treatment programs for children and adolescents. I have developed innovative teaching materials for children and families on managing anxiety and depression, and am currently developing an evaluation study for a new parent training module for the Taming Worry Dragons program. My team is currently conducting a study of intensive behavioral treatment for childhood selective mutism, a disabling anxiety disorder.
