Developmentally Adapted Cognitive Processing Therapy Effective for Youth With Abuse-Related PTSD

Both study groups showed a significant reduction in PTSD symptom severity, but the outcome of posttreatment assessment was enhanced for those participants receiving D-CPT.

Does using marijuana as a teen pose a risk to the brain? The question has been asked and studied by scientists for years, generating a range of opinions.
Recent research in mice by 2008 BBRF Independent Investigator Mikhail Pletnikov, M.D., Ph.D., and colleagues suggests how youthful cannabis use may interact with an underlying genetic predisposition to cause cognitive impairments later in life in some users.

Hi all, I am the community outreach counselor for Nick Finnegan Counseling Center. I am currently revamping our entire referral and partnership system and would love to get some more names and information. I have developed a survey to get started with this. If you are interested in being in our referral database, here is a survey link to fill out. Please, fill out as an individual and have others in your practice do the same so we may be specific with referrals. Thank you so much for your time and assistance.

I just found out that the film “Stockholm,” about the origin of Stockholm Syndrome, is going to be coming to the AMC Gulf Pointe 30 tomorrow, April 26th and had to tell you about it! The film takes a look into the minds of hostages in the 1970’s bank robbery, following their growing sympathies with the criminals and growing distrust of their own government. I thought the film did masterful job of showing the development of the syndrome, and I can’t wait to see it again!
