Robert H. Remien, Ph.D. is a clinical psychologist, a research scientist at the HIV Center for Clinical and Behavioral Studies since 1987, and a Professor of Clinical Psychology in the Department of Psychiatry.
For many years, he has been actively involved in developing research and clinic-based mental health and prevention programs with community-based organizations (CBOs) and clinicians, domestically and internationally. Much of this work has focused on primary and secondary prevention for people living with HIV/AIDS and serodiscordant couples since the early 1990’s.
His current research is focused on the integration of prevention and treatment, specifically in the domains of mental health, medical and sexual behavior interventions for HIV individuals and serodiscordant couples, and medical adherence interventions, as well as HIV primary prevention among all adult populations, especially among MSM.
Dr. Remien is the Director of the Global Community Core (GCC) in the HIV Center for Clinical and Behavioral Studies and has served in recent years as chairperson for the New York State Psychological Association's Task Force on AIDS; a member of the New York City's Department of Health Prevention Planning Group; and senior faculty for the American Psychological Association's HIV training program for psychologists.
He is a clinical supervisor to psychiatric residents in training and mentor to post-doctoral research fellows. Dr. Remien also maintains a private clinical practice in New York City, providing individual, couples, and family therapy to all populations.
