Philosophy of Care

Entering into Psychiatry, I always wanted to be a child psychiatrist. My interests were in how children responded to stress and I pursued research in this area. Most of my time as a young child psychiatrist was spent doing Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry at Boston Children's Hospital. My focus was largely on surgery and particularly on plastic and reconstructive surgery. It was in this area where I developed a special interest in body image. The rest of my career has been largely devoted to administration and global child mental health including 5 years at the World Health Organization in Geneva.
