Greenville, South Carolina (PRWEB) February 27, 2014
Dr. Robert A. Moss provided an hour presentation on the cortical column brain code model and how this relates to psychological problems and treatment. Following a brief discussion of cortical microcircuitry, there was a discussion on how disruption of column formation may be a common denominator in schizophrenia, autism, and Alzheimer’s disease. This was followed by an explanation on how depression and anxiety disorders develop based on the model.
Dr. Moss has published a number of articles on the Clinical Biopsychological Model and its foundational Dimensional Systems Model in the past 15 months. He is actively involved in promoting this approach and is scheduled to do an hour workshop at the April international meeting of the Christian Association for Psychological Studies in Atlanta. He and three of his graduate students made presentations on this approach last year in Barcelona, Spain, at the international conference of the Society for the Exploration of Psychotherapy Integration.
