Courtney Beard Elias, Ph.D.


Available: 09/19/17, Expires: 09/01/21

The Behavioral Health Partial (BHP) Hospital Program at McLean Hospital treats over 800 people per year. The student will work with Courtney Beard, PhD, and Thröstur Björgvinsson, Ph.D., members of the research and clinical faculty in Harvard Medical School, and be a part of the BHP’s ongoing clinical research examining transdiagnostic mechanisms underlying psychopathology and the effectiveness of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy-based hospital care for a range of psychological problems (depression, anxiety, personality, psychosis).

Dr. Beard will work with the student to develop an independent project utilizing the BHP's extensive clinical databases. Potential topics (among numerous others) include novel predictors of treatment response, trends in pharmacotherapy, and psychometric evaluations of clinical measures.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
