Registration Opens for Symposium on Emotion Dysregulation

Friday, April 8, 2016

The Menninger Clinic, along with co-sponsor Baylor College of Medicine, announces the opening of registration for the Third Annual John M. Oldham National Mental Health Symposium, the theme of which will be emotion dysregulation and regulation.



By examining the biological, psychological and interpersonal underpinnings in the development of emotion regulation and dysregulation, participants will enhance their ability to assess disturbance in emotion regulation in multiple patient populations. Exploring neuroimaging research related to stress response and resilience, and recent clinical studies related to effectiveness of targeted therapeutic strategies, will help participants expand their ability to identify, differentiate and utilize effective therapeutic approaches that promote emotion regulation.
