I am Dr. Barbara Melamed, board certified Clinical Health Psychologist from the American Board of Professional Psychology. Using the knowledge and experience that I gained through years of education, clinical practice, and research, I founded Behavior Medicine Associates in Honolulu, HI.
I am also a member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. My education is extensive, including fellowship at Academy of Behavioral Medicine Research and the American Psychological Association.
I am an advocate for children and families. My volunteer work in schools and courts supports my interests in mediation and conflict resolution. I am a certified mediator through Uh Matsunaga Institute for Peace & Conflict. I offer assistance for troubled relationships through my expertise in marriage and family counseling at Behavior Medicine Associates.
As a recognized author and professional contributor on panels and in clinical studies and my experience with serving on the editorial board of many prestigious medical, dental, and psychological journals, I have been asked to participate in film, media, and television appearances to discuss topics such as phobias, eating disorders, HIV families, foster families, chronic pain, as well as how to prepare children for surgery.
While working with the American Pediatric Society and the American Medical Association, I helped draft the primary care classification system, DSMIV, for childhood emotional disorders. I also served on the American Psychiatric Associations task force on defining children’s mental disorders for a diagnostic, statistical manual for Internal Medicine and pediatrics. I also offer my services in child therapy.
