Biographical details

Dr Anthony Harris is an Associate Professor in the Discipline of Psychiatry, Sydney Medical School at the University of Sydney, a senior staff specialist psychiatrist for the Prevention Early Intervention and Recovery Service in the Western Sydney Local Health District and the Director of the Clinical Disorders Unit at the Brain Dynamics Centre, Westmead Hospital. After completing training as a psychiatrist in Sydney, Dr Harris worked as a consultant in the area of psychogeriatrics in the United Kingdom before completing research work at the Zentralinstitut für Seelische Gesundheit in Mannheim, Germany in the field of psychophysiology. On return to Australia he has worked in clinical and administrative positions in the Wentworth and Western Area Mental Health Services in Sydney before specialising in the field of early intervention in psychosis. He is the President of the Schizophrenia Fellowship of New South Wales and the Deputy President of the Mental Illness Fellowship of Australia. He chairs the Board of the Research Trust Fund of the Schizophrenia Fellowship of NSW.

Research interests

My principle research interests centre on the psychophysiology, neuroimaging and treatment of first episode psychosis, schizophrenia and major depression. This work is principally carried out at the Brain Dynamics Centre at Westmead Hospital. Treatment research has included randomised controlled trials of computer assisted cognitive remediation, CBT for substance abuse in young peole with psychosis and industry sponsored pharmaceutical trials. I am also conducting research into clinical reasoning and how we are teaching it in the Psychiatry teaching program of the School.
