Seminar date: 4/5/2011
Description: Evidence-based psychotherapies for depression are under-utilized in primary care settings. In part, this may be due to the perception that psychotherapy is lengthy and time intensive, with guidelines recommending 12 to 20 1-hour sessions for most psychotherapies. In this cyber seminar, the presenters will discuss findings from a systematic review and meta-analysis of brief psychotherapies (i.e., <= 8 sessions) for depression. They will devote particular attention to implications for primary care and to needs for future research. Bradley E. Karlin, Ph.D. National Mental Health Director, Psychotherapy and Psychogeriatrics Office of Mental Health Services will be available for comments and questions.
