All Seats $22.75
When the Johns Hopkins Civility Initiative debuted in 1998, Daniel Buccino was among its earliest champions. The clinical social worker and assistant professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences deeply admired the work of the program’s first director, P.M. Forni, who was passionate about offering guidance on how to foster respectful human interactions and etiquette.
Buccino was on a parallel mission in his work teaching aspiring psychotherapists how to build and maintain cordial relationships with patients and colleagues. In 2014, he succeeded Forni in directing the Civility Initiative.
In the wake of one of the most contentious presidential elections in his country’s history, Buccino says requests for guidance have been pouring in.
Daniel L. Buccino, MA, MSW is the clinical manager for the Johns Hopkins Broadway Center for Addiction, the founder and director of the Baltimore Psychotherapy Institute, and an associate and advisor for the International Center for Clinical Excellence.
With P.M. Forni, Mr. Buccino was a Founding Member of the Johns Hopkins Civility Initiative in 1998 and he became its Director in 2014.
Mr. Buccino is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and Associate Professor at the Smith College School for Social Work, and at the University of Maryland School of Social Work.
Mr. Buccino has published, lectured, and consulted widely on issues of psychotherapy outcomes, manners and mental health, the ethics and etiquette of health care, and on civility in health care, the academy, and in the workplace.
