ABOUT US

ABOUT

The Boston Child Study Center is a faculty practice dedicated to improving the lives of children, adolescents, young adults, and families through innovative evidence-based cognitive behavioral treatments. Our faculty hold positions at the Boston Child Study Center as well as clinical and academic appointments at top hospitals and universities including Harvard Medical School, The May Institute, McLean Hospital, Children’s Hospital Boston, and Boston University Center for Anxiety. This diverse breadth of experience allows us to provide expert services in the fields of:

Neuropsychological Assessment
Comprehensive Diagnostic Assessment
Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
Mindfulness & Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Exposure and Response Prevention (ExRP)
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)
Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT)
Teacher-Child Interaction Training for Emotion Regulation (TCIT-ER)

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to eliminate the many barriers to state of the art assessments and treatments. On average, our patients report seeing upwards of 8-10 providers before reaching our doors. Families frequently struggle to find effective evidence-based mental health services and often see multiple providers without accessing the information, support, or relief they desperately need. Research on anxiety, mood, and behavioral disorders has identified treatments that effectively reduce suffering and help kids return to their childhood. However, the lack of public information about evidence-based treatment and the lack of consistency in mental health services make it increasingly difficult for families to identify effective providers of evidence-based treatment. This causes many families to feel increasingly defeated and negative about mental health services and the prospect of relief.

Our mission is to eliminate barriers to effective treatment by:

  1. Disseminating evidence-based assessment and treatment through comprehensive treatment teams at the individual, group, family, school, and community level.
  2. Increasing access to services through flexible and innovative delivery methods including, in-vivo community exposure therapy, mobile coaching, internet delivered interventions (telehealth), and public education and training of local community and school clinicians.
