With advancements in brain imaging, genomics and personalized medicine, psychiatric diagnosis will become more specific and treatments more personalized, shaping the way for better outcomes. The spread of Telepsychiatry will allow access to patients who otherwise had no access to treatment.
Mobile technologies will give opportunities for psychotherapeutic interventions and for monitoring symptoms and outcomes on an ongoing basis. Wearable devices may provide avenues for patients to interact with the world in ways that were not possible before. New technology will also allow for advancements in treatments that will change the lives of children suffering from mental illness. Big data will enable us to answer research questions in ways that were never available before. The opportunities seem boundless!
Note: This is a serious workshop that even saw-wielding orthopods can relate to, with nary a mention of yoni steaming or herbal colonics, and there are absolutely no Zoom group hugs.
This popular workshop begins with a review of debriefing (i.e., interventions designed to prevent PTSD after a trauma), including insights from the lead presenter’s work with the Canadian government's National Roundtable in Ottawa. We then review a shortcut to the diagnosis of PTSD, proceeding from there to the details of (and controversies pertaining to) the fuller diagnostic criteria. The core of the workshop—training in treatment—emphasizes those tools realistic for use in primary care. As always, the assumption is a ten-minute appointment (with three patients in the waiting room). Special topics include the curious case of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), “emotional baggage” (i.e., old traumata), the eye-opening forgiveness research, so-called "hindsight bias", the Oprah-esque "imaginal rescripting", intergenerational trauma, the Faustian bargain of children who survived ACEs (adverse childhood experiences), complex PTSD (C-PTSD), trauma-informed care, and what data we have on medical marijuana. The workshop ends with a very uplifting topic: the emerging and exceedingly hopeful literature on post-traumatic growth.
