ACADEMIC PROFILE:

 

            Biography (100 words)

Tony Yang was born in Texas.  He graduated Phi Beta Kappa from The Johns Hopkins University in 1985.  Following his undergraduate education, he attended U.C. San Diego in the Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP).  He obtained his Ph.D. in the lab of Dr. Floyd Bloom at The Scripps Research Institute.  His Ph.D. thesis focused on applying Magnetoencephalography (MEG) to examine neural plasticity and somatosensory cortical reorganization in upper limb amputees and brachial avulsion patients.  Upon finishing the M.D.-Ph.D. program at UCSD in 1996, he entered and completed an internship and adult psychiatry residency program at Stanford University.  Following completion of residency, he entered a three-year combined Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship and NIMH T32 post-doctoral research training program at Stanford University.  In 2002, he graduated from Stanford University and took a position at UCSD.  At present, he is an Assistant Professor, In Residence, within the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Division in the Department of Psychiatry at the UCSD School of Medicine.

 

 

            Research Focus (100 words)

Dr. Yang’s research focus is on the study of adolescent depression using functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI).  He has support for his research from the NARSAD foundation, the Klingenstein Third Generation Foundation, and NIMH.  He has a 5-year NIMH Career Development Award (K23) from NIMH to study adolescent depression using functional MRI.

 

 

            Clinical Focus (100 words)

Dr. Yang is a child and adolescent psychiatrist working at Children’s Plaza in the outpatient psychiatry clinic.  He is the physician leader on two treatment teams at Children’s Plaza, supervisor of the child and adolescent psychiatry fellows, and primary psychiatrist for his patients at Children’s Plaza.  Dr. Yang’s primary clinical focus is on the understanding and treatment of depression in children and adolescents.  Dr. Yang has started a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Depressed Adolescents at Children's Plaza (Please see description of CBT program below).

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for Depressed Adolescents Program at Children's Plaza.
 
            Due to the fairly recent FDA Black Box warnings regarding the use of antidepressants in children and adolescents, it has become significantly more difficult to prescribe and monitor the use of antidepressants in depressed adolescents.  Furthermore, due to the media coverage of the FDA Black Box warnings, parents are much more aware and are often concerned about the possible side effects of antidepressants being used in their adolescents.
            In order to meet the needs of adolescents and parents who want an alternative treatment to antidepressants for the treatment of depression, I have organized some of the psychology interns and child and adolescent fellows to do CBT on adolescents suffering from depression.
            Adolescents suffering from depression who do NOT want to use antidepressants initially for treatment may be referred to our clinic for CBT treatment.
            After being referred to us, we will first do a comprehensive interview to determine the adolescent's DSM-IV diagnosis.  The KSADS-PL (the gold standard in child and adolescent psychiatry for determining psychiatric diagnosis) will be administered to the adolescent and the parent(s).  If the adolescent has depression, then he/she will receive CBT. If the adolescent does not have depression, then he/she and the parents will be given the results of the KSADS-PL which will inform them of the adolescent's psychiatric diagnosis.
            For Medi-Cal patients, our clinic will accept their Medi-Cal insurance.   
            For commercial/private insurance patients, they may be seen by our clinic for a very reasonable rate of $25 per session.  Each session lasts 50-60 minutes. Since they will be seen by trainees in our clinic, the commercial/private insurance patients will simply need to sign a waiver form that states they agree to be seen by a trainee in our clinic at Children's Plaza.  
            Please note that the "trainees" that they will be seeing are actually quite advanced in their training.  The psychology interns have received a great deal of training in CBT and using instruments such as the KSADS-PL to make a psychiatric diagnosis.  The psychology interns in our program already have their Masters degrees, and they are in their final year of training just prior to receiving their Ph.D.  Similarly, the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry fellows have already completed their internship and general psychiatry residency prior to entering our fellowship program.
            The adolescent that will most likely benefit the greatest from the CBT program will be those suffering from Major Depression (MDD) and/or Dysthymia, and who do not have any other comorbid psychiatric or neurological disorders.
             

             If there are any adolescents with depression who do NOT wish to initially use antidepressants and desire to receive Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, please contact me directly on my confidential voicemail at Children's Plaza:  (858) 966-5832 ext. 7761.
