Paul B Greene, PhD

Dr. Greene is an Assistant Professor in Cancer Prevention and Control.  His research is primarily focused on the efficacy of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) for difficulties faced by cancer survivors – whether they are in active treatment or are post-treatment. His research team completed a major clinical trial of CBT for posttraumatic anxiety in survivors of hematopoietic stem cell transplant, a procedure sometimes used in treatment of leukemia, lymphoma and other conditions.  Results showed that CBT produced significant improvements in various types of anxiety and depression.  Along with William Redd, Ph.D, Dr. Greene is currently leading a dissemination effort to train professionals in nursing, social work, and psychology to use CBT effectively for patients affected by cancer.
