Neuroscience Driven Approaches to Cognitive and Behavioral Therapy for Anxiety and Depression
Dr. Craske’s talk will address ways in which advances in the neuroscience of defensive and appetitive motivational systems inform psychological treatment development. Within the defensive system, discussion will focus upon translation from the basic science of inhibitory extinction learning and inhibitory regulation for increasing response rates and reducing contextual return of fear. Latest data regarding pharmacological attenuation of contextual specificity will be presented. Within the appetitive system, discussion will focus upon evidence of deficits in neural and behavioural indices of reward sensitivity in depression and anxiety. Latest data regarding the outcomes from a new transdiagnostic treatment approach designed to enhance reward anticipation/motivation, reward attainment and reward learning will be presented.

This free lecture is made possible by a generous endowment from Professor Allen L. Edwards.
