Lucene Wisniewski received her PhD in clinical psychology from the University of Pittsburgh and completed an NIMH supported Clinical-Research Post-doctoral fellowship at the Eating Disorders program at Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic. A leader in the use of Dialectical Behavior Therapy(DBT), Dr. Wisniewski worked with Dr. Marsha Linehan’s group at Harborview Hospital in Seattle, Washington from 1998-2000. From 2000-2006, she worked with Dr. Linehan’s Behavioral Technology Transfer Group as their eating disorder expert, giving workshops on the treatment of eating disorders nationwide and authoring a chapter in the Group’s most recent book, Dialectical Behavior Therapy in Clinical Practice (2007).

In 2000, Dr. Wisniewski was named the first Clinical Director of Eating Disorder Programs for University Hospitals Health System’s Laurelwood Hospital. In that role she created the first PHP programs for eating disorders in Northeast Ohio. She pioneered the use of both DBT and Maudsley Family Based Therapy during her tenure with UHHS, creating the first treatment center in Northeast Ohio using only evidence based care. Her research and clinical interests include using empirically founded treatments to inform clinical programs. Dr. Wisniewski is a fellow in the Academy for Eating Disorders and the North American Association for Study of Obesity. She is a current board member of the Academy of Eating Disorders.
