Dr. Robert A. Moss will conduct an hour presentation on the cortical column brain code model and how this relates to psychological problems and treatment. This will include information on how disruption of column formation may be a common denominator in schizophrenia, autism, and Alzheimer’s disease. There will be an explanation on how depression and anxiety disorders develop based on the model, and ways to approach treatment.
Dr. Moss has published a number of articles on the Clinical Biopsychological Model and its foundational Dimensional Systems Model in the past 16 months. He is actively involved in promoting this approach. There is an article on the Emotional Restructuring treatment session that will appear in the Neuropsychotherapist magazine in the April issue. This will provide a detailed discussion of how the brain is thought to be affected by each step in this treatment procedure designed to neutralize the impact of negative emotional memories.
