Research & Publications
Dr. Beitel is a licensed clinical psychologist and Associate Research Scientist in the Child Study Center at Yale School of Medicine. He is a psychotherapy researcher with an interest in patient variables (demographic and diagnostic), therapist variables (attitudes and in-session behaviors), and patient-therapist interaction variables (working alliance) that affect treatment outcome. Dr. Beitel 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.
