Marc I. Rosen, M.D.
Dr. Marc Rosen received his Doctorate of Medicine in 1986 from the University of Pennsylvania and completed his psychiatry residency at Yale in 1990. He is an Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the Yale University School of Medicine and a staff psychiatrist in the VA Connecticut Healthcare System. He directs the Substance Abuse Treatment Firm at VA Connecticut. Dr. Rosen has worked to develop and test the efficacy of behavioral interventions for clients with comorbid psychiatric and substance abuse disorders. One line of Dr. Rosen's research considers the relationship between spending decisions by clients and clinical outcomes; much of this research has involved people receiving disability payments. The questions have been approached with surveys, analysis of data from quasi-experimental designs, and clinical trials. A second line of research considers interventions to help people adhere to recommended treatment. Dr. Rosen’s research continues to evolve with the new challenges clients present and with the expanding menu of approaches available to meet these challenges. His work has been recognized by continuous NIH grant support since 1993, VA merit review and HSR&D support, and participation in NIH and VA IRGs. A video, treatment manuals, and study instruments are available at his group’s website: http://www.behaviorchange.yale.edu.
