I started out as an academician with a Ph.D. in social-
psychology at the University of Illinois and taught theory, research methods, and statistics for a few years at Arizona State University (1964-1965) Hopkins Medical School in Baltimore in 1968 and thereafter had ten years of supervised, formal training in the delivery of clinical services (assessment and treatment of living patients). Johns Hopkins was recently (2011) ranked as the #1 hospital in the United States. I was director of their M.D.-Ph.D. program in Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences from 1969 to 1973. I have been a Ph.D. Professor of Psychiatry continuously since 1969 (for 45 years).
While at Hopkins I had five years of intensive patient training
with psychiatric suicidal in- and out-patients. My supervisors were psychiatrists Joel Elkes, M.D., Seymour Perlin, M.D., Chester Schmidt, M.D., and Nahum Spinner, M.D. I was certified by JHUMS as a post-doctoral fellow in Psychiatry. Part of my Hopkins post-doctoral training included an internship at the Los Angeles Suicide Prevention Center, where I was supervised in direct clinical care of living suicidal patients by Robert Litman, M.D. I was also a Deputy Medical Examiner in Baltimore under Russell Fisher, M.D. for four years.
After five years of intensive clinical training in Psychiatry,
where I was promoted to Associate Professor of Psychiatry, I had 5 additional years of M.D.-supervised clinical training as follows:
• World Health Organization Fellow in Psychiatry, Berlin, Germany,
• Yale Foundations Fund Fellow in Psychiatry, Vienna, Austria,
Erwin Ringel, M.D. (supervisor), 1979-1980.
• Director, University of South Carolina Suicide Center (I had 12
clinical staff and assessed and treated student ca. 17-35 years old), Harold Morgan, M.D. (Harvard), (supervisor), 1985-2001.
• Killam Visiting Professor of Psychiatry, Calgary, Alberta,
Sebastian Littman, M.D. and Bryan Tanney, M.D. (supervisors), 1986.
• Visiting Professor of Psychiatry, Western Psychiatric Institute,
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, J. John Mann, M.D. (supervisor) 1993.
• Psychiatric Residency Training at Univ. So. Carolina (for 6
months), Peter Swanson, M.D., and J.T., Thornhill, M.D. (supervisors), 1993.
Thus, (during and) after Johns Hopkins I had about 5 more years of
formal clinical training in Psychiatry and Suicidology, for a total of about 10 years of clinical training and another 10 years of clinical experience. As Director of the USC Suicide Center (1986-2001)I did psychotherapy with suicidal college students. Of course, my 245 (to date from about 1980 to 2014) forensic cases involved intensive clinical review of the diagnosis, assessment, and treatment of psychiatric and suicidal patients (much like a Pathologist would have patients). I have been active in the study and review of psychiatric medications and worked with the FDA and Columbia University in the metaphysical analysis of antidepressants. I have also studied in-depth the clinical trial data of anti-convulsants and anti-epileptics. See my recent book, Pillaged: Psychiatric Medications and Suicidality (in press, USC, 2014). Finally, I have taught Introduction to Psychiatry and Suicide Assessment and Prevention for many years at the University or South, and continue to supervise resident physicians in Psychiatry (including training them in the use of the psychological autopsy) and Family Medicine.
