More About the Author

Michael W. Otto, Ph.D. was born and raised in New Mexico. After getting his doctorate at the University of New Mexico he moved to the East Coast where he is now Professor of Psychology at Boston University. He is a federally funded investigator of strategies to improve treatment outcome for anxiety, mood, and substance use disorders, with over 350 publications spanning his research interests. Dr. Otto has over two decades of clinical and research experience at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, and has served as President of the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies. A central professional role has been to teach new therapists the science and art of helping people find successful strategies for desired change. Most recently, he has turned his attention to writing treatment manuals and books, including the following books written and published in the last several years:

* Hofmann & Otto (2008). Cognitive behavior therapy for social anxiety disorder: Evidence-based and disorder-specific treatment techniques. New York: Routledge.
* Otto et al. (2008). Living with bipolar disorder. New York: Oxford University Press.
* Otto et al. (2008). Managing bipolar disorder: A cognitive-behavioral approach (Therapist guide). New York: Oxford University Press.
* Otto & Pollack (2009). Stopping anxiety medication, 2nd Edition (Therapist guide). New York: Oxford University Press.
* Smits & Otto (2009). Exercise for mood and anxiety disorders (Therapist guide). New York: Oxford University Press.
* Otto et al. (in press). 10-Minute CBT: Integrating cognitive-behavioral strategies into your practice. New York: Oxford University Press.
* Otto, M. W. & Smits, J. A. J. (in press). Exercise for mood and anxiety: Proven strategies for overcoming depression and enhancing well being. New York: Oxford University Press.

These works direct readers to the central elements of change, to help readers and/or their therapists direct their efforts toward clinical success.
