Upcoming Mood Disorders Conference

While NAMI Southwestern Pennsylvania is focused on its NAMI Walk event this Sunday, Western Psychiatric Institute & Clinic is preparing for its mood disorders conference later this  month.

The Advances in the Treatment of Mood Disorders: 2011 conference is scheduled to take place Friday, October 21 at the Sheraton Station Square. This meeting will offer a succinct way for clinicians to assimilate recent advances in mood disorder treatment. Michael E. Thase, MD and the other speakers will present new developments in the treatment of depression and bipolar disorder.

This conference will also include a series of workshops, which will offer an intimate didactic learning opportunity for increasing understanding of psychopharmacologic and psychotherapeutic techniques. Some of the topics to be addressed include depression and cardiovascular disease, postpartum depression, depression and panic disorder, new brain modulation therapies, the use of neuroscience in mood disorders, and treatment guidelines for depression as well as the intersection of basic biology and clinical practice.

Good post. I learn something totally new and
challenging on sites I stumbleupon everyday. It will always be helpful
to read content from other authors and practice a little something from their sites.
