About Norman Greenfield and the Greenfield Lecture
This annual lecture honors the legacy of Norman S. Greenfield, former Professor of Psychiatry and Associate Director and co-founder of the Wisconsin Psychiatric Institute. The lecture fosters educational efforts related to understanding neuroplastic mechanisms underlying change with effective treatments, especially psychotherapy.
Dr. Greenfield played a key role in fostering early scientific investigations into the role of psychophysiological correlates of psychological disorders and the processes involved in personality change, as exemplified by his books "Psychoanalysis and Current Biological Thought" and "The Handbook of Psychophysiology."
Additionally, Dr. Greenfield was very dedicated to the supervision of psychiatry residents and preparing them to effectively integrate psychotherapy with pharmacology in their treatment of patients. The early values he brought to the University of Wisconsin Department of Psychiatry, using rigorous scientific methods to integrate psychology with psychiatry to improve the lives of those suffering from mental illness, continue today as the Department of Psychiatry's guiding principles.
