Michaela B. Swee, PhD, is a staff psychologist and Director of Clinical Training in the Trauma Continuum of Care at McLean Hospital. She is an instructor in psychology in the Department of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. Her research and clinical interests surround the intersection of shame, self-compassion, and fear-related disorders (e.g., trauma- and stressor-related disorders, anxiety disorders, and obsessive-compulsive disorder). Dr. Swee is interested in improving and delivering treatments aimed at helping individuals struggling with high levels of anxiety, shame, and self-criticism across a range of psychological disorders. To this end, she specializes in acceptance, mindfulness, and compassion-focused approaches that aim to help individuals reduce struggle in their lives and foster warmer intra- and interpersonal relationships.

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.
