Neural Bases of Emotion Regulation During Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction ~ Web Lecture
There is a growing interest in identifying the brain-behavioral mechanisms that underlie clinical interventions for anxiety disorders. Social anxiety disorder is the most prevalent form of anxiety. There are two distinct psychosocial interventions for this disorder: mindfulness based stress reduction MBSR)focusing on modulating one’s relationship to ongoing mental experience of cognitions, emotions, and sensations; and cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) which emphasizes training in cognitive restructuring within the context of graded exposure.
Philippe Goldin, Ph.D. completed his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at Rutgers University, Clinical Psychology Internship at the UC San Diego/San Diego VA consortium, and is currently a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Psychology at Stanford University.
His clinical research focuses on (a) functional neuroimaging investigations of cognitive affective mechanisms in both healthy adults and in individuals with various forms of psychopathology, (b) the effect of mindfulness meditation and cognitive behavioral therapy on neural substrates of emotional reactivity, emotion regulation, and attention regulation, and (c) the effect of child-parent mindfulness meditation training on anxiety, compassion, and quality of family interactions.
