As a psychiatrist at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, my interest in the psychiatry/spirituality interface has been stimulated by work in addiction, life-threatening illness and the treatment of religious patients. I co-teach a medical school course Spirituality, Healing and Medicine, an Ethics in Psychiatry course to PGY 2 residents, and a Spirituality, Religion and Psychiatry course to our PGY 4 residents. In addition to papers and chapters I've authored or co-edited Doing the Right Thing: An Approach to Moral Issues in Mental Health Treatment (APPI, 2004), Handbook of Spirituality and Religion in Clinical Practice (APPI, 2004), Religious and Spiritual Issues in Psychiatric Diagnosis: A Research Agenda for DSM-5 (APPI, 2011), Depression and the Soul: A Guide to Spiritually Integrated Treatment (Routledge, 2011) and The Soul of Medicine: Spiritual Perspectives and Clinical Practice (Johns Hopkins, 2011). I'm interested in collaborating with others on projects at the APA Annual Meeting.
