The Center for Collaborative Psychiatry, Medicine, and Psychology is an association of independent practitioners dedicated to the study of collaborative treatment for cases with complex medical, psychiatric, and psychosocial issues. Our work has focused on the development of an approach to these problems that we call the Medical-Psychiatric Coordinating Physician Method, as well as other approaches to the use of collaboration in assessment and treatment. Our methods have been developed in accordance with the approaches described in Steve Frankel's five books, the most recent of which is Comprehensive Care for Complex Patients (Cambridge University Press, 2012).
Steven A. Frankel, M.D., directs the Center. Steve is a psychiatrist who is board certified in both general and child psychiatry. In his private practice, he provides clinical assessment and treatment according to the methods studied at the Center. Center Co-Director Diane Engelman, Ph.D., is a neuropsychologist who provides psychological testing and neuropsychological assessment.
The directors and associates of the Center for Collaborative Psychiatry, Medicine, and Psychology meet regularly to participate in the development of collaborative methods for managing and treating complex cases. We often write together and jointly arrange educational programs. We welcome your interest and participation.
The independent practitioners associated with the Center are available privately for assessment, treatment, and consultation. For further information, please contact us.
