About Us

The Boston Child Study Center is an evidence-based treatment, training, and research center dedicated to improving the lives of children, adolescents, young adults, and families through innovative evidence-based cognitive behavioral treatments.

Our Mission
Our Services

Assessment

We conduct comprehensive diagnostic assessments to ensure that the optimal treatment program is prescribed for your and your family’s needs.

Treatment

We provide evidence-based treatments to youth, young adults, and families through individual, family, group, school-based, and intensive treatment modalities.

Research

Our goal is to conduct innovative and impactful research that can have direct clinical application both within our practice and to the larger community.

Training

In line with our goal of disseminating treatments for the community, we offer professional training opportunities for both parents and clinicians alike.

Our Commitment

Boston Child Study Center is outraged by the murder of Philando Castile, George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Elanor Bumpers, Adner Louima, and many other Black men and women. We absolutely condemn racism, violence, bigotry and complacency. We are committed to anti-racist practices, policies, and personal actions within BCSC’s professional and clinical scope as well as in each of our individual lives. We are committed to working diligently as individuals, clinicians and as a center to achieve racial, sexual, religious, and gender equality. We continue to remain committed to further our ability to improve mental health treatment, training and research equity. We will work diligently to continue learning and standing with people of color. BCSC also recognizes our own fallibility and privilege and welcomes any feedback from the community as we continue to grow and learn from our own mistakes, as we recognize that being an anti-racist institution requires continuous work, dialogue, action, and education.

Sadly, BIPOC make up 1-7% of mental health professionals in the US. BCSC is committed to changing this painful and embarrassing reality. The Boston Child Study Center Foundation will be offering full and partial academic scholarships to BIPOC pursuing graduate degrees in psychology and mental health starting this Winter. More details will be posted on our website in the near future.
