Personal perspectives on teaching:

I enjoy an active role in resident supervision and education. I supervise third and fourth year residents in the outpatient clinic, with an emphasis on moving the clinical interview from a fact-finding mission to a more dynamic process which promotes the therapeutic alliance. I also moderate a monthly conversation group to which all psychiatric residents are invited to discuss the various aspects for their growing profession identities.
