Dr. Jesse Viner created Yellowbrick in recognition of the specialized needs of emerging adults and their families, and the necessity for a treatment system that addressed the unique challenges of the transition into adulthood. In his program, Yellowbrick, Viner and his colleagues use their Developmental Neurobiology Model to offer an integrated treatment paradigm for treating emerging adults with substance abuse disorders. This treatment model is ground in and guided by the latest research findings of the sociocultural, genetic, and neurobiological factors. A recognized expert in the treatment of eating disorders, difficulties resulting from trauma and abuse, and bipolar disorder, Dr. Viner has three decades of experience applying the knowledge of psychiatry and psychoanalysis to the challenge of creating meaningful and pragmatically effective treatment programs. Following his education at Yale, The Chicago Medical School, Northwestern University Medical School Psychiatry Residency and The Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis, Dr. Viner has served as Director of Adult Psychiatry Inpatient Services for Northwestern University Medical School; Medical Director of Four Winds Chicago, a private psychiatric healthcare system; and Director of University Behavioral Health, a group practice on the North Shore of Chicago. He is on the faculty of the Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis, an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine and Rush Medical College, and on faculty at The Family Institute at Northwestern University. Dr. Viner is a Distinguished Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association.
