Barbara McCann, PhD

Personal Statement

I am interested in mood and anxiety disorders, and the intersection of these with chronic medical illnesses. My approach to treatment is integrative. Working within a cognitive-behavioral framework, I use many traditional CBT methods, but also include hypnosis, mindfulness training, and concepts from third-generation cognitive and behavioral methods.

Department Affiliations

Teaching Philosophy

​I teach psychiatry and psychology residents, and medical students. These learners are highly motivated people who have made enormous personal sacrifices to reach this level of training. As such, I treat them with the utmost dignity and respect, and I regard it as the highest honor to teach them.  I do not view my role as that of “expert;” rather, I am an experienced guide on a journey in which I point out that which is familiar to me, while gathering and sharing new experiences and insights along the way. Their questions and observations enrich my journey.
