AADT's Session Wrap-Up
> 6/11/2007 10:54:36 AM

We covered a lot of ground this week here at Anxiety, Addiction and Depression Treatments, including news on concussions and the NFL, new research on telepsychiatry, celebrity misbehavior and addiction, and a program in D.C. to ease child custody battles. Now, while kicking back on your lunch break, explore some of the stories that we didn't have a chance to get to:

It's Not All the Parents' Fault - New evidence reported by the Association for Psychological Science shows that there are genetic factors that determine whether a child will have behavior issues. Of course, environment still plays a large role as well.

Neuroscience of Déjà Vu - Boing Boing linked to interesting insights being gained by scientists at MIT into the mechanics of that strange feeling that all of this has happened before...

Movie Headaches Vex Real-Life Docs - Presenters at the American Headache Society's annual scientific meeting were not pleased with the portrayal of headaches in popular cinema. As opposed to the slight annoyances we experience everyday, movie character headaches are often signs of split-personalities, homicidal tendencies or even possession by the devil.

Genetic Testing for Suicidal Tendencies - Some doctors believe they have identified a genetic component to the controversial and contentious link between beginning antidepressant treatment and having suicidal thoughts.

Borderline Personality Disorder Shows Improvement with Intensive Psychotherapy - Different therapy options have been shown to be effective in dealing with clients struggling with BPD.
