Jen Gottlieb, Ph.D. is a Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) Consultant, Supervisor, and Trainer with particular expertise in CBT for Psychosis (CBTp), First-Episode Psychosis, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in people with severe psychiatric conditions, and other empirically-supported interventions for schizophrenia and other psychoses --
as well as in training in the provision of CBT-based clinical supervision. She has co-authored multiple treatment manuals and serves as an expert trainer for the NAVIGATE coordinated specialty care model for first episode psychosis.
Dr. Gottlieb recently received a Fulbright Senior Researcher Award to Spain where she adapted and began implementation of a specialty CBT for PTSD intervention for persons with severe psychiatric conditions/serious mental illness, within a Madrid patient population. A Spanish speaker, she continues to collaborate with Spanish colleagues at Universidad Complutense de Madrid.
As a result of her experiences living abroad as a Fulbright professional as well as interacting with younger Fulbright teaching assistants and other college-age students, Dr. Gottlieb has developed a cognitive-behavioral stress-management skills program curriculum for young adults preparing to live abroad. The goal of these workshops --which are specifically tailored to address some of the common challenges for young adults living overseas-- is to positively impact mental health, problem-solving abilities, resilience, acculturation, and overall overseas experience prior to, and while abroad.
