Her interest in immunology led her to the field of psychoneuroimmunology (PNI), better known as integrative or functional medicine. PNI led her to work with holistic MDs, eventually producing talk shows in radio and television. Lisa still has one foot in broadcasting as the producer and on-air host of the weekly cable television show The Lisa Wessan Show.
While doing research on stress management techniques in graduate school for clinical social work, Lisa explored the research on therapeutic uses of laughter for caregivers. Lisa became double certified to teach Laughter Yoga and Laughter Meditation in medical settings. Her work has been featured on CNN’s Paula Zahn Now, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Daily News, The Boston Globe, The Lowell Sun, ABC News 20/20, and in many television, print and radio interviews.
Lisa became interested in the robust results from Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), so she studied with Dr. Marsha Linehan, founder and thought leader of DBT. Lisa has been facilitating a thriving and ongoing weekly DBT Skills Group since November 2015.
