I am a licensed psychologist, author, former medical consultant for Social Security Disability Determinations, and educator and I've appeared on national TV shows and in print media where I'm sought for my opinions on stress, anxiety and mental illness. I am also a psychologist/consultant for WebMD. I've held clinical positions at Mt. Sinai Medical Center in NYC where I was the national clinical monitor for the first medication for Alzheimer’s disease. I've also served in large psychiatric hospitals and mental health centers and have been active in every area of mental health. Formerly, I was the Health & Science Editor of Time/Warner Cable in New Jersey and a professor of psychology on the community, undergraduate and graduate levels, also was a psychiatry preceptor at The University of Medicine & Dentistry of New Jersey, served on the NJ Psychologist Licensing Board and the Board of Directors at Bergen Pines Hospital.
I've published with McGraw-Hill and Demos Health and self-published with Amazon, actively tweet on Twitter (@drpatfarrell) and contribute to Medium.com and blog on my website (www.drfarrell.net). I am writing my first novel and short stories and I'm planning a self-published book on pain. Primarily, my self-published books are of a self-help nature.
At one time, I was an associate editor at Publisher's Weekly and another book publishing journal, King Features Syndicate and a senior science writer for Manning, Selvage & Lee in their pharmaceuticals area. I've also consulted with pharmaceutical firms and public relations agencies in the pharmaceutical area.
