Science Researcher Update: Spotlight on Meetings, Conferences, and Events

Neuroimaging Mechanisms of Change in Psychotherapy for Addictive Behaviors

Posted on May 6, 2015 2:38:00 AM

Conference - San Antonio, TX, United States
A critical barrier to progress in improving the magnitude and durability of treatment effects involves addressing gaps in knowledge regarding “how” treatment works at the level of brain-based mechanisms.
The 2015 inaugural conference includes presentations by leading experts in neuroimaging and addictions treatment research that address mechanisms of behavior change that are “common” across different types of treatment for alcoholism (e.g., cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness), and mechanisms that are specific to certain types of behavioral interventions. Presentations will provide a common framework for collaboration between treatment and neuroimaging researchers by covering conceptual, methodological, and clinical issues relevant to studying brain-based mechanisms that underlie effective behavioral interventions. The meeting aims to foster cross-disciplinary collaboration to accelerate translational research.
Organization: University of Pittsburgh & University of New Mexico
