Women's Program - Payne Whitney Westchester
The Women's CBT Program at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/ Payne Whitney Westchester offers a unique inpatient treatment service for women seeking short-term intensive care for acute psychiatric disorders. Some women with mental health problems are best treated on a single gender unit that accommodates their distinctive needs. This unit offers a collaborative environment through an innovative group-based cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) program, in a milieu that is respectful of social and cultural diversity.

Treatment Program
The Women's CBT Program provides specialized academically-oriented psychiatric care for women suffering from mood disorders, anxiety disorders, and psychotic disorders, complicated in some instances by addictions or medical illness. This one-of-a-kind program provides a specialized focus on cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), an evidence-based treatment modality that can be applicable to a wide array of psychiatric conditions. An intensive group therapy schedule during the week offers the foundation for the CBT curriculum. Attention will also be paid to psychiatric disorders related to reproductive life-cycle events such as postpartum or perimenopausal conditions, and to gender-specific psychosocial issues.

The program offers
Individualized diagnostic assessment including biological, psychological and social factors
Individual, group, marital and family therapy with a specialized focus on CBT
State-of-the-art psychopharmacology management and education
Psychosocial rehabilitation activities such as relaxation training, art therapy, yoga
Consultation with community providers regarding treatment and discharge planning

Women ages 18 and older in need of inpatient psychiatric treatment are eligible for admission. Preference will be given to those able to benefit clinically from a gender-specific unit that specializes in cognitive-behavioral therapy.

A skilled multidisciplinary treatment team, including psychiatrists, nurses, social workers, psychosocial rehabilitation therapists, nutritionists, pharmacists, internists and nurse practitioners provide clinical services. Staff members working with the Women's Program are recruited specifically for their interest and expertise in the area of cognitive-behavioral therapy and women's issues. Many of the unit staff have received specialized training at the Beck Institute and at the American Institute of Cognitive Therapy in CBT. Additional consultations with gynecology, neurology, psychology, pastoral care professionals, and addiction recovery specialists are available as needed.
