Harvard/MGH Center for Health Outcomes and Interdisciplinary Research- Jafar Bakhshaie MD PhD (ACT/Process-Based; USA)

I am physician, licensed staff clinical health psychologist (with a minor in Biostatistics) at Massachusetts General Hospital, and the recipient of the prestigious Kaplen and Livingston Fellowship Awards at Harvard Medical School. My research focuses on developing and testing scalable mind-body interventions for medical conditions, with a focus on transdiagnostic and process-based cognitive-affective vulnerabilities that underpin physical and mental health conditions (e.g., co-morbid emotional distress and substance use), and health disparity populations (e.g., underserved minorities). I have co-authored over 150 peer-reviewed articles and presented at several national and international scientific conferences.I am interested in providing second and third wave behavioral treatments (e.g., acceptance and commitment therapy, self-compassion therapy, process-based therapy) to address health disparities.
