Conference Overview

Despite intense research and clinical efforts, many problems remain in the treatment of mood disorders. The rate of full remission from initial treatment of major depression is only 35-45%, recurrences of all mood disorders are very common, and rates of suicide appear to be increasing. A troubled economy has added to the stress that people with mood disorders must face. The aims of this conference are to help attendees learn about some of the newest and most promising ideas for treating mood disorders and to build specific skills in delivering effective therapies. Leading experts in biologically based treatments and psychosocial interventions will detail advances in neuroscience, genetics, psychopharmacology, and practical psychotherapeutic approaches to challenging problems.
