Dr. Michael Schulein’s health service psychology practice focuses on teenagers, children and young adults dealing with difficulties related to ADHD, anxiety, depression, anger, family conflict and behavioral difficulties.
“I especially enjoy working with teens, because when we meet and they are dealing with an adult who is not their parent, they are often more willing to look at their emotions and stressors and try to figure out how to handle them,” Dr. Schulein said. “I also enjoy helping teens see just how capable they really are. Often they underestimate their own abilities.”
Dr. Schulein follows the “3 C’s” in his daily work:
• Caring attitude, which he provides from the start.
• Context, which he seeks, by listening closely to the child and parent.
• Collaboration, which he invites, and with the patient and family develops the best way to deal with their concerns.
He takes great satisfaction in sharing this approach with children, parents, psychology fellows, and medical residents and students. In addition to his clinical duties, he is training director for the Child/Adolescent and Pediatric Psychology Fellowship programs and chairs the Clinic’s Resident Well-Being Committee, which supports residents and fellows in their training programs at the medical center.
Dr. Schulein enjoys traveling, reading, conversations and dabbling in photography.
