Addictions Department Staff

Dr Patricia Conrod

PhD CPsychol

Clinical Senior Lecturer


Patricia Conrod is a BPS Chartered Clinical Psychologist and Seniour Clinical Lecturer in the Addictions Department, Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience, King’s College London. She will join the Faculty of Medicine, Department of Psychiatry, University of Montreal in September, 2010 and will be based at the CHU Sainte-Justine Mother and Child Hospital Centre.  Her research focuses on cognitive, personality and biological risk factors for the development and maintenance of drug abuse and the factors that mediate the co-occurrence of addictive behaviours with other mental disorders. Her experimental research focuses on factors that make people more susceptible to seek out behavioral reinforcement from drugs of abuse. She has published several studies demonstrating that personality factors determine the type of reinforcement experienced from substances of abuse. More recently, her research findings have led to the development of new approaches to substance abuse treatment and prevention that target personality risk factors and the underlying motivational determinants of drug use in subtypes of substance misusers.  Dr. Conrod is a member of the King’s College London Research Ethics Committee and Associate Editor of Current Reviews in Drug Abuse.

Research Interests

Psychopathology: Experimental and clinical research on psychobiological mechanisms implicated in the development, maintenance and relapse of psychopathology. Investigation of factors that mediate co-occurrence between mental disorders. Development of client-treatment matching strategies.

Substance Abuse: Experimental and clinical research on the genetic, psychobiological and cognitive risk factors for various forms of substance abuse with a particular focus on individual differences in the vulnerability to experience specific forms of reinforcement from drugs of abuse.

Clinical Interests

Substance Use Disorders: Treatment that promotes personal responsibility for change and offers insight into motivation for substance use and abuse. Cognitive-behavioural training to help clients achieve alternative coping patterns based on an understanding of the psychobiological, psychosocial and cognitive factors that maintain the substance use problem.

Child/Adolescent and Adult Psychopathology: Treatment of youth and adults with various forms of psychopathology within a multidisciplinary setting. Psychobiosocial approach to treatment following an extensive assessment of the individual and his/her family and psychosocial context. Cognitive-behavioural and psychodynamic strategies applied based on suitability of client. Emphasis on relapse prevention and assessment of long-term outcome. Dedication to a scientist-practitioner model.
