Pub Discussion

Understanding and treating emotional disorders: Does DSM matter?

Treat yourself to an insightful and engaging discussion relating to transdiagnostic treatment models for emotional disorders, presented by a speaker at the forefront of an international movement toward transdiagnostic models of psychopathology.

Since DSM-III was published in 1980, we have been trained to think about each of the anxiety and depressive disorders as distinct illnesses, and to treat them using interventions designed for each diagnosis.

Twenty years of research into genetics, functional neuroanatomy, cognitive science, learning models, and developmental science suggests that the similarities across these diagnoses far exceeds the differences. Furthermore, transdiagnostic or unified interventions are upending the belief that interventions must be tailored to specific diagnoses.

This presentation will discuss models of “Emotional Disorder” and emerging transdiagnostic treatment models.

Check out the flyer for more information.

A pub discussion is a relaxed opportunity to observe a presentation on an interesting topic regarding cognitive behavioural therapy. There are opportunities for the willing to engage in a discussion relating to the topic towards the end of the presentation.
