Kim T. Mueser, Ph.D. is a clinical psychologist at the Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation, Boston University, and Professor of Occupational Therapy, Psychological and Brain Sciences, and Psychiatry. His research interests are on the development and evaluation of psychosocial interventions for persons with serious mental illness. His work has involved a range of different treatments, including integrated treatment for co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders, cognitive behavioral therapy for posttraumatic stress disorder, illness management and recovery, cognitive remediation, family psychoeducation, interpersonal skills training, and treatment of first episode psychosis. He has published several hundred peer reviewed publications and coauthored over ten books. His research has been supported by the National Institute of Mental Health, the National Institute on Drug Abuse, and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. This presentation will begin by providing a model that conceptualizes resiliency as a product of selfdetermination and the cultivation of positive emotional experiences in meaningful social contexts, and the implications of the model for the treatment of young individuals who are experiencing psychotic symptoms.
