CBT for Drug Addiction and PTSD via Wearable Sensor Platform and Mobile Application

Researchers from the Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) are currently examining the effects of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) delivered via mobile device to patients suffering from drug-addiction and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The delivery system involves an ankle sensor (to monitor electrodermal activity, 3-axis acceleration, and temperature) and an ECG heart monitor. The monitors contain bluetooths which are connected to patients’ cell phones. When certain arousal levels are…

Long-Term Study on Family Group Cognitive-Behavioral Preventative Intervention Shows Promising Results in Children Whose Parents Have Major Depressive Disorder

A recent study published in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology found that a family group cognitive-behavioral (FGCB) preventative intervention for children (9-15 years old) whose parents have suffered from Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) significantly lowered the rates of MDD onset in children during a 2-year intervention period. The rates of MDD in children in the FGCB preventative intervention were reduced by half compared to a written information group…
