Christian A. Webb, PhD, received the 2021 Anne Marie Albano Early Career Award for Excellence in the Integration of Science and Practice from the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT). Webb, who is the director of McLean’s Treatment and Etiology of Depression in Youth (TEDY) Laboratory, was recognized for his laboratory’s investigations into the mechanisms underlying treatment response in psychotherapies for depressed adolescents.
“I’m extremely honored for this recognition from ABCT,” Webb said. “Given my research interests, I count ABCT as one of my professional homes and have always admired their genuine commitment to translating sound clinical psychological science toward the goal of easing the burden of mental illness and improving the emotional and psychological well-being of individuals.”
Webb’s colleague, Diego A. Pizzagalli, PhD, said, “Christian and his talented team have developed an impactful and innovative research program that integrates multiple approaches toward the unified goal of developing better and more personalized treatments for adults and adolescents with depression. Christian’s commitment to a better understanding and treatment of depression has been inspiring.”
