John Weisz is a Professor of Psychology at Harvard University and at Harvard Medical School. Professor Weisz is internationally recognised for his pioneering research that includes trials to develop and test strategies for implementing evidence-based treatments for children and adolescents who have serious emotional and behavioral problems.

He has published many meta-analyses in which he evaluated treatment research and proposed ways to strengthen it. He has taken these findings and used them to develop new ways of delivering evidence based interventions in child and adolescent mental health. Professor Weisz’s work brings science and clinical practice together to optimise mental health care for young people.
