A Short Biography:

On the faculty of the UCLA School of Medicine since 1970, Dr. Liberman has been Professor of Psychiatry since 1978. He has directed the UCLA Center for Research on Treatment & Rehabilitation of Psychosis, funded by the NIMH, since 1977. This center includes 25 scientist-practitioners, who conduct research projects and develop and validate new treatment techniques in Biobehavioral psychiatry, integrating innovative methods from principles of psychopharmacology, behavior, learning theory, and brain-behavior-environment interactions. Research projects under the Centers umbrella are conducted at various sites around the USA in medical schools, mental health centers, VA Medical Centers, and state hospitals. The inspiration for Dr. Liberman's work in treatment development and evaluation has come from his direct, clinical involvement with mentally disabled persons at St. Elizabeth's Hospital, the Massachusetts Mental Health Center, Camarillo State Hospital, Oxnard Mental Health Center, West Los Angeles VA Medical Center, and UCLA Neuropsychiatric Institute & Hospital. With his colleagues at the UCLA Center for Research on Treatment & Rehabilitation of Psychosis, Dr. Liberman has produced a series of user friendly modules for training social and independent living skills for the mentally disabled. These modules have been translated into 15 languages and are used throughout the world.
