location: ROBERTS PDR ROOM
Despite its controversies, the DSM-5 offered little change from DSM-IV. But what’s ahead—the efforts to discover full-blown biological markers for a range of mental conditions—will truly revolutionize the mental health field. This workshop will bring you the latest on cutting-edge developments to help you develop the kind of practice that will be required in the future.
In this workshop, you’ll learn:
- The fundamentals of determining biological markers for mental disorders, including genetic variations, epigenetic, and cellular markers as well as biochemical testing of neurotransmitters, neuromodulators, and cortisol
- The treatment advances ahead, including genetic scans, specially epigenetically tailored medications, and 21st-century psychosurgery
- The latest about new biochemical interventions directed at genetic modification of intracellular mechanisms, cortisol blockers, and drugs to prevent future biochemical changes like Alzheimer’s
