11:00AM – 1:00PM 1 July 2017, Parks Clinic, Woollahra

the application of ISTDP to patients presenting with psychogenic seizures

William H. Watson, Ph.D., is Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Neurology at the University of Rochester Medical Center/Strong Memorial Hospital, NY. His work at the Strong Epilepsy Center indicates that 30-40% of the population presenting with intractable seizures show normal EEGs during seizures recorded on the unit, indicating the psychogenic nature of these events. Since becoming aware of ISTDP through attendance at Professor Allan Abbass’s Halifax workshops, he has been applying principals and techniques of ISTDP to his clinical work with this population.

On a brief visit to Sydney, Bill now has some very interesting videos that he would like to show and discuss with ISTDP colleagues.

Excellent coffee and baked goods will be served.

The fee is $25, to register click here.

Owing to the clinical materials to be presented, attendance is open only to registered mental health and health professionals.
