Neurocognitive Therapies and Translational Research Webinar Series: Session 1

July 15, 2020

Basic neuroscientific research on the mechanisms underlying cognitive, affective, and social processes have been slow in penetrating real-world psychology/psychiatry clinics. This is a missed opportunity for maximizing and advancing our understanding of core patterns of psychopathology and treatment response in neuropsychiatric disorders. This series will bring together members from the neuroscience, medical, and psychiatry/psychology communities to translate basic science findings into real-world clinical practice. 

Inaugural Webinar:

“The Future of Mental Health Science”
Emily Holmes, PhD DClinPsych
July 15, 2020 at 10:00 ET

Dr. Holmes is Professor in the Department of Clinical Neurscience at the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden and a Visiting Professor in Clinical Psychology, Department of Psychiatry, University of Oxford. She is a clinical psychologist and neuroscientist with an innovative program of translational research that examines the role of mental imagery in psychological disorders, and the development of new psychological interventions such as computerized cognitive bias modification. Her program of research is an excellent example of how research from basic cognitive neuroscience can be rapidly translated to real-world clinical interventions. More information about her exciting research, as well as links to her publications, can be found here: https://ki.se/en/cns/emily-holmes-research-group.
