WBUR – NPR’s program – ON POINT
Dr. John Otis is currently developing a Behavioral Medicine Program as part of the Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders that will give students the opportunity to develop clinical skills for working with patients with a variety of presenting problems including chronic pain, stress conditions, sleep, smoking, and substance use. Students will be supervised by Dr. Otis.
Dr. Otis has helped countless numbers of individuals gain greater control over their chronic pain. He travels nationally giving talks and workshops to both clinicians and patients on how the principles of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) can be used to help people lead healthier and more productive lives. He is the author of Managing Chronic Pain (Oxford University Press: Treatments that Work Series) – an “evidence based” treatment program. He will be seeing pain patients at the Center.
