Peter M. Lewinsohn received his Ph.D. from The Johns Hopkins University in 1955. His initial research activities were focused on psychosomatic issues, assessment, the measurement of improvement, and hallucinations and delusions. Starting in 1964, Dr. Lewinsohn’s research interests began to focus on the topic of depression, which has been central to all of his research since then. Dr. Lewinsohn made the transition from the University of Oregon to ORI between 1985 and 1988.

Dr. Lewinsohn’s current research has eight main foci:

a) The role of family history of mental disorder in the transmission of mental disorder across generations.

b) Factors which influence the course of mental disorder from childhood/adolescence to young adulthood.

c) Clinical significance of subthreshold disorders.

d) Clinical predictors of chronic depression and anxiety.

e) Intergenerational risk factors and consequences of obesity.

f) Efficacy of “screeners” for various psychological disorders including depression, bipolar, conduct disorder.

g) Behavioral activation therapy treatment.

h) Dimensional structure of psychiatric diagnoses.
