Dr. Ryan J. Madigan

Dr. Madigan founded the Boston Child Study Center (BCSC) with the mission to improve the lives of youth and families through expanding access to evidence-based treatment and provide community education and training. He is also an Instructor of Psychology in the Department of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and a Clinical Psychologist at the McLean Hospital 3East DBT Program, where he runs the 3East DBT Trauma & Exposure Program for adolescents struggling with PTSD, anxiety, depression, and co-occurring suicidal behaviors and non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI).

Dr. Madigan earned his master’s degree and doctorate in Clinical Psychology at Rutgers University before completing his clinical fellowship in pediatric psychology at Harvard Medical School/Children’s Hospital Boston and his postdoctoral fellowship at Boston University, Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders. As a Research Fellow at the Boston University, Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders, he provided supervision to clinical psychology doctoral students and participated in clinical trials examining the feasibility of internet-delivered evidence-based treatments for childhood mental health disorders. In addition, he served on the Treatment Adaptations Taskforce on the Advisory Board of Parent-Child Interaction Therapy International.

Dr. Madigan provides direct patient care, supervision, and training in evidence-based treatments for youth anxiety, mood, and behavioral disorders, including individual therapy, family therapy, and parent and adolescent skills groups in CBT and DBT. He directs BCSC’s comprehensive DBT services, delivering individual DBT, family-based DBT and parent coaching, and DBT Skills Groups for youth and parents. He is also developing BCSC’s Intensive Outpatient Program for Complex Care, providing intensive evidence-based CBT and DBT programming to youth and young adults with complex diagnostic presentations, with the mission to never turn a family away for treatment.

Dr. Madigan’s research and programing initiatives include the development of assessment and treatment protocols combining neuropsychological testing and functional cognitive-behavioral analyses to identify specific skill and performance abilities critical to adaptive and maladaptive emotion regulation. He is also working to evaluate the feasibility and efficacy of Dialectical Behavior Therapy Prolonged Exposure (DBT PE) for adolescents with PTSD and co-occurring life threatening behaviors.

In addition to his work at BCSC, he provides consultation for written and televised media segments regarding issues in the fields of psychology and mental health, and provides professional workshops and trainings on emotion regulation, anxiety, behavior-management, CBT, DBT, and mindfulness. He also provides consultation to schools, mental health agencies, and organizations in social and emotional curriculum development, with the goal of enhancing student quality of life, efficiency, and academic performance.
