Andrew Lagomasino, Psy.D., ABPP, co-teaches the Professional Behavior 1 course for medical students.
Lagomasino first became interested in the field of psychology in the 1980s when counseling substance abusers in a rehabilitation center. After entering graduate school, his interests evolved towards using insight-oriented or analytic therapy to treat low-income minorities.
Lagomasino worked as a Cambridge Health Alliance staff psychologist for 10 years. He also saw students from top universities in metropolitan Boston, supervised trainees, conducted a seminar and organized a major conference on cross-cultural psychotherapy in 1999, and ran a part-time private practice.
Areas of Interest
Lagomasino has maintained a long-term interest in treating addictions, whether to alcohol and drugs, or to activities, such as gambling and sex. Lagomasino’s approach in the treatment of addictions has evolved a great deal since the 1980s, having learned about the compulsive structure of addictions, which makes them as understandable and treatable as any other compulsive behavior, with analytic therapy.
