Should doctors treat depression more like a stroke? ADAA members discuss new approaches to training the depressed brain. Researchers are developing new psychological treatments that aim to directly target the particular dysfunctions and processes that underlie depression.
Help us spread the word about the benefits of treatment for anxiety and mood disorders, OCD, and PTSD — for children and teens, women, men, and all those suffering from related illnesses.
Please tweet, post on Facebook, or add the links to your own website — whatever works to get the word out that you are not alone and help is here!
Below are the handouts made available by the presenters to ADAA. The titles include the first presenter's last name and the three-digit, Master Clinician, or other session number. For further information, you may refer to the Presenter Index in the final program.
