Eric Strachan, PhD

Personal Statement

​As a clinician I provide primarily cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for people living with HIV and AIDS at Harborview Medical Center’s Madison Clinic. I also teach CBT to third year Psychiatry residents and provide clinical supervision to Psychiatry and Psychology residents. In past years, I also provided group CBT for adults diagnosed with schizophrenia and other psychoses at Harborview and Western State Hospital. As a researcher, I work with the University of Washington Twin Registry and other University of Washington investigators to better understand depression, pain, and how psychological stress affects physical health.
