CNI-X Mini-Series: Interventional Psychiatry, with Dr. Kristin Raj

April 2024

It isn’t everyone who gets to interact and learn from world-class brain-mind scientists in a small, informal setting, but that’s the uniqueness of the Clinical Neuroscience Immersion Experience (CNI-X) for high schoolers from the Stanford Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. One of the presenters in this two-week summer program uses the newest, cutting-edge tools to treat mental illnesses. Clinical Associate Professor Dr. Kristin Raj is the Chief of Stanford’s Interventional Psychiatry. She introduces students to treatments that “intervene” in the effects of resistant conditions, such as Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) and delves into the thought-provoking discussion of what it means to work to “heal” but not “change” a psychiatric patient.
