      President and Medical Director

      Silver Hill Hospital

      Dr. Gerber will describe a framework for understanding therapeutic action in psychoanalytic psychotherapy and then relate this to a neuroscientific understanding of these changes, based on MRI research.


      Educational Objectives   

    • As a result of participating in this activity, learners should be able to:
      1.       Describe contemporary social cognitive neuroscience research that is relevant to our understanding of how the brain changes in response to core components of psychoanalytic psychotherapy interventions including: exposure and response prevention, alteration of relationship representations, and restructuring of narratives.

    • 2.       Discuss and evaluate the evidence for the role of these psychoanalytic psychotherapy interventions in a broad range of psychotherapeutic approaches.

    • 3.       Review new approaches for using neuroimaging to study how to tailor psychoanalytic psychotherapeutic interventions to individual patients.
