Charles E. Drebing, Ph.D.

Dr. Charles Drebing received his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology in 1990 from Fuller Theological Seminary and completed a 2-year research fellowship in neuropsychology in 1992 at the UCLA School of Medicine. He is currently the Mental Health Service Line Manager at the Edith Nourse Rogers Memorial Veterans Hospital in Bedford, Massachusetts. He has been an Investigator with the VISN 1 New England MIRECC since 1997. Dr. Drebing has been conducting health services research for the past 20 years, focusing much of his work on evaluating and enhancing vocational and residential services, investigating how consumer decisions impact access to services, and the role of family members in health care decisions. His work has contributed to a number of new service models and enhancements for Veterans with mental health disorders, including supported self-employment, contingency management for vocational rehabilitation, motivational interviewing interventions for employment, and peer-mediated supported education. He has published much of the existing literature on the VA health care system’s Compensated Work Therapy (CWT) program and his ongoing work seeks to support enhanced utilization and better outcomes for common mental health services.
