The Neurobiology of Anxiety and Depression and Traumatic Stress – Implications for Therapy
• New developments in the neurosciences have shed light on the biological basis of many psychiatric disorders. This workshop looks in detail at the neurobiology of anxiety, depression and traumatic stress. The discussion is comprehensive, but presented in an easy to understand format.
• A second focus of the workshop is on treatment implications. There is a review of non-medical approaches to altering brain functioning and thus reducing psychiatric symptoms, considering the role of exercise, sleep hygiene, diet, light therapy, and the neurobiology of psychotherapy.
• In these days of brief therapy, mental health therapists and consumers alike must make use of effective and efficient approaches. The strategies addressed in this workshop are based on solid research and are designed to supplement more standard approaches to psychotherapy.
