It’s a special honor to be able to bring you this interview with Dr. Elia Abi-Jaoude today. Too often, the conversation around the mental health crisis among children and teenagers fails to discuss recovery and recovery rates. Dr. Abi-Jaoude shares with us his experience treating children and teens and watching some of them heal and fully recover.
He’s a practicing psychiatrist, clinical educator, and researcher at the University of Toronto. His area of clinical specialization is in developmental neuropsychiatry, and he’s currently completing a Ph.D. in the cognitive neuroscience of self-regulatory control. He’s also interested in questioning how evidence and information is disseminated in psychiatry. Part of his professional responsibilities involves educating medical trainees and psychiatrists to mitigate bias in clinical practice.
