He directs the Duke Cognitive Behavioral Research and Treatment Program (CBRTP), is Program Director for the Duke Clinical Psychology Fellowship Program, is Co-Chief Psychologist for Duke University Medical Center, and until recently served as the Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences Vice Chair for Clinical Services. Dr. Rosenthal has over 75 publications and has received grants to conduct research from a range of funding sources, including the National Institutes of Health, Department of Defense, foundations, and major donors. His research largely has focused on characterizing problems with emotional functioning and emotion regulation in adult psychopathology. In doing research on emotion regulation and borderline personality disorder, Dr. Rosenthal became interested in the relationship between emotional processes, psychopathology, and Misophonia. He is a licensed psychologist in North Carolina with expertise in contemporary cognitive behavioral therapies, and is an expert in the treatment of borderline personality disorder using dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). In addition to research, administrative duties, and clinical practice, Dr. Rosenthal enjoys teaching undergraduate and graduate students, mentoring students, interns, post-docs, residents, and faculty, and training community clinicians in best practices using cognitive behavioral therapies for adults. In his free time, he loves to watch his two teenage sons play ice hockey (yes, ice hockey in North Carolina!), and to laugh and live fully with his wife and friends.

The Duke Center for Misophonia and Emotion Regulation (CMER) is actively conducting clinical research on misophonia, providing education to the public, and evaluating patients with treatment and management recommendations about misophonia. Given how little is known about misophonia, the opportunities for discovery and improved care are virtually limitless.
