Thanks to everyone for such a great conversation last night! It was so fabulous to see everyone's opinions about therapy and I can't wait to see what else you have to say.

A few questions to think about:

What do these studies mean for future methods of treatment?

What happens to our models of "disease?"

Are psychotropic treatments valid? Are more talk-based treatments more appropriate?

Why are people still so skeptical of psychotherapy?

What is treatment doing? Is it bringing people back to "baseline?" What is baseline?

Dr. Yadin will be looking at the forum too, so feel free to pose any questions you have for her. We look forward to seeing your thoughts.


Here is the link to BBC article about anti-depressants having little effect we were talking about.
