RIO RANCHO, NM, March 31, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Sally Severino, MD, Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine, has been recognized by Cambridge Who's Who for showing dedication, leadership and excellence in all aspects of psychiatry.
With an impressive background that spans 32 years, Dr. Severino specializes in the study of physical, mental and spiritual integration. She recently co-authored "Sacred Desire: Growing in Compassionate Living," published by Templeton Foundation Press (2009). The work draws on numerous elements including neurophysiology, research regarding spiritual development, relationship studies and psychotherapy to make a connection between spirituality and the physical being. The book makes a strong case for the theory that human beings are "biologically wired" to seek a connection with the divine--a concept that Drs. Severino and Morrison refer to as "sacred Desire."
Prior to attaining her current position at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine, Dr. Severino spent 17 years in academic psychiatry at New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center and five years as Executive Vice-Chair, Department of Psychiatry at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine. Certified by the American Psychoanalytic Association, she served as the first woman president of the American College of Psychoanalysts. A board certified physician through the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, Inc., she earned her MD from Columbia University, College of Physicians and Surgeons. She is the recipient of the John J. Weber Prize for Candidate Research, Columbia University Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research; the Wholeness of Life Award, Hospital Chaplaincy, Inc, New York City; the Presidential Award and the Laughlin Service Award, the American College of Psychoanalysts.
