AT 529 Interpersonal Neurobiology and Treatment of Depression
Clinical neuroscience can provide a framework for therapy to better understand/explain and intervene in the dynamics of depression and anxiety. The class will explore the neurobiological roots of anxiety and depression, examine the neuroscience findings regarding how the brain works in therapy and responds to treatment (medication and therapy). One of the unexpected consequences of clinical neuroscience is how understanding the brain can increase self-understanding and acceptance of ourselves and others in clinical work. Pass/No Pass grading not available. Cross-listed as AT 429 for undergraduate credit and as AT 029 for continuing education. 1 cr.
