OCD and Anxiety
Five clinical leaders from Rogers Behavioral Health will share their insights at the 2016 Anxiety and Depression Conference(link is external) in Philadelphia, PA, sponsored by the Anxiety and Depression Association of America(link is external) (ADAA).
“ADAA is one of the leading conferences that focuses on anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and depressive disorders where researchers and clinicians from throughout the world convene to share ideas,” says Eric Storch, PhD, clinical director of Rogers Behavioral Health–Tampa Bay and a Morsani College of Medicine professor.
“The ADAA annual meeting is unique because it brings together the top researchers and top clinicians in the world for the purpose of improving the way we treat, someday cure and prevent the suffering caused by the disorders related to anxiety and depression,” adds Karen Cassiday, PhD, clinical director of Rogers Behavioral Health–Chicago and president of the ADAA.
Rogers’ presenters will offer their insight on the following topics. The full schedule is available online(link is external):
As expected, Rogers’ specialists are eager to share their knowledge with others in the field. “A workshop Dr. Jerry Halverson and I are presenting discusses treatment for individuals struggling to transition into adulthood due to their depression and anxiety—these individuals are often characterized as experiencing ‘failure to launch,’” says Dr. Leonard. “The transitional period of time between adolescence and adulthood is characterized by high rates of depression, often with other co-occurring disorders, so identifying treatments that target the needs of this unique population is incredibly important.”
Stephanie Eken, MD, regional medical director, and national outreach representatives Blair McAnany and Rick Ramsay will attend the conference as representatives of Rogers Behavioral Health.
Rogers’ specialists will also be available at our exhibit table to answer programming questions at the following times:
