Dr. Beitel is a licensed clinical psychologist and psychotherapy researcher. He serves as Associate Research Scientist in the Child Study Center and Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Yale School of Medicine. He is also a lecturer in Ethnicity, Race, and Migration at Yale College. Dr. Beitel is interested in patient variables (demographic and diagnostic), therapist variables (technique use), and patient-therapist interaction variables (working alliance) that affect treatment outcome. He conducts qualitative and quantitative research. He has a longstanding interest in patients who present with co-occurring chronic physical pain and opioid dependence. More recently, he has begun to investigate psychotherapy process and outcome variables with American Indian patients in psychotherapy, a group that lacks evidence for the safety and efficacy of psychotherapy.
