I have been in the practice of child, adolescent, and adult psychiatry for over 37 years. In addition to clinical practice, I am involved in medical student teaching, and research into the effects of being a child born of war. Formerly Director of the Divisions of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Baylor College of Medicine and OHSU, I am now Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry at OHSU. In addition, I am a Distinguished Life Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association and a Life Fellow of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. Prior to entering medicine, I was a Captain in the US Marine Corps, served in Vietnam, and received a Bronze Star with Combat "V".
