The New York Branch of ISPS-US and the Psychoanalysis and Psychosis Study Group of NYU Postdoctoral Program had a meeting yesterday with Dr. Yulia Landa presenting her successful research on CBT group treatment of persons with paranoia and delusions. She is on staff at NY Presbyterian Hospital and offers these groups in her private practice as well ( Manhattan and Westchester County). Dr. Landa presented preliminary neuroimaging data, performed by Dr. David Silbersweig of Weill Medical College of Cornell University, demonstrating the therapeutic effects on the brain of group psychotherapy.
Thank you to all of the ISPS-US, NYU Postdoc & NYU School of Social Work members who attended this meeting! I believe it was another very successful, enjoyable and informative gathering.
Below is a partial bibliography I compiled on the subject of CBT &psychosis (and severe obsessional disorder):
