Description:  Targeting Cognitive and Affective Processes in Behavioral Development Research: Perspectives on the Basic to Clinical Journey in Psychological Science

Event Date: June 19, 2018
Presenters: Greg Siegle, Ph.D., and Arielle Baskin-Sommers, Ph.D.

Abstract

Greg Siegle, Ph.D., will present on cognitive training to address obstacles to recovery. His talk will describe neural vulnerabilities that could help to explain the mediocre success rate of traditional behavioral treatments along with initial data suggesting that we can address these features using targeted cognitive training as pre-treatments. These data lead to an augmented conceptualization of precision medicine in which assessment can be used in traditional ways, to direct patients to different treatments or to suggest pre-treatments to turn likely-nonresponders into likely responders to conventional treatments.

Arielle Baskin-Sommers, Ph.D., will present on an experimental therapeutics approach to target antisocial behaviors. Antisocial behavior, from substance abuse to crime, produces suffering for the perpetrator, for their family members, for their community, and for society at large. The underlying cognitive-affective mechanisms tell us why individuals continue to engage in these behaviors, despite the persistence of suffering. Utilizing the approach of knowledge integration from basic science on these cognitive-affective mechanisms to intervention research highlights the path for alleviating this suffering.
