Psychiatrist to receive inaugural mid-career innovator award

Staff Report


Carla Kmett Danielson, Ph.D., an associate professor and director of training at the National Crime Victims Research and Treatment Center in the Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences, is being awarded the inaugural Mid–Career Innovator award from the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies.

Danielson, a native of Cleveland, will be honored at the 2014 ABCT Convention to be held in Philadelphia in November.

The award, designated for significant innovative contributions to clinical practice or research on cognitive or behavioral modalities, is given in honor of the late Dr. Alan Marlatt. Marlatt’s pioneering research changed the face of clinical practice in the addiction field.

The award is in recognition of her innovative research in developing creative mental health treatment approaches for difficult–to–treat populations, particularly adolescents with co–occurring traumatic stress and substance use problems.

ABCT is a national organization committed to the advancement of scientific approaches to the understanding and improvement of human functioning and the enhancement of health and well–being.
