Cognitive Behavioral Therapy trainer at Center for Deployment Psychology
Carin Lefkowitz, Ph.D is a licensed clinical psychologist and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy trainer at the Center for Deployment Psychology (CDP) at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences. I’m also a National Cognitive Processing Therapy Trainer.
In my current role at CDP, I deliver workshops and consultation to professional audiences involved in the treatment of military connected patients and their families.
I earned my Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology at Widener University for the concentration in cognitive behavioral therapy.
Prior to joining CDP, I served as the Psychologist at the Philadelphia VA Medical Center. In this capacity, I provided individual and group psychotherapy with a focus on evidence-based treatments for PTSD and insomnia and I coordinated the medical center’s Cognitive Processing Therapy program. I also served as a Clinical Supervisor to Vet Center clinicians and psychology interns and practicum students at the medical center.
I’ve published peer-reviewed articles on prolonged exposure therapy for PTSD and was a therapist on studies of evidence-based treatments for insomnia and traumatic nightmares.
In addition to my work at CDP, I maintain an adjunct instructor appointment with Widener University’s Institute for Graduate Clinical Psychology and was previously a Clinical Associate of the University of Pennsylvania’s Department of Psychiatry.
