Biography

Sarah Valentine is an Assistant Professor in Psychiatry at BUSM and Clinical Psychologist at BMC. She received her PhD in Clinical Psychology from Suffolk University, and completed her predoctoral internship and postdoctoral research fellowship in the Department of Psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School. Dr. Valentine’s research focuses on the implementation of evidence-based treatments for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and co-occurring disorders among underserved populations, including racial and ethnic minorities, immigrants and refugees, sexual orientation and gender minority populations, and criminal justice involved youth. Her clinical research projects focus on reducing health disparities through the development, implementation, and dissemination of treatments that dually address minority stress factors (e.g., discrimination, stigma, and access barriers) and mental health symptoms. Dr. Valentine recently received an NIMH-funded K23 grant that aims to optimize a brief cognitive behavioral therapy for PTSD for use in primary care.
