Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry

Three young smiling children

Our division embraces state-of-the-art psychodynamic, family relational, cognitive/behavioral and pharmacological approaches. We value mentoring, support and promotion of junior faculty and excellence in clinical and research training, and we provide an outstanding environment for professional growth and fulfillment.

Education and Training

Our two-year program trains fellows to practice as highly competent, ethical and resourceful clinical child and adolescent psychiatrists. We use a systematic, biopsychosocial approach that integrates training psychotherapeutic skills with a strong foundation in psychopharmacology and the neurosciences.


Our faculty have earned national and international recognition for their clinical research with children and their families in the Buffalo community. Many of our investigations focus on the psychosomatic connection between mental and physical health issues, including:

  • cystic fibrosis and depression
  • stress, depression and asthma
  • stress-related seizures

We have also conducted studies on ADHD and family relational factors that influence children’s stress, depression and pediatric illness.

Our longstanding relationship of clinical service and collaborative research with Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo has garnered significant grant funding and led to innovative combined pediatric/psychiatric treatment programs.


We have developed novel approaches to clinical consultation-liaison psychiatry with Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo, and have adapted this model to provide child psychiatry consultation to pediatric primary care. We also oversee ongoing clinical projects in service delivery and treatment adherence and host an interdisciplinary forum to support faculty and student research.

Clinical Practice

Our faculty and fellows care for patients at a variety of sites throughout the Buffalo area.
