Research on mental illnesses has made substantial advances in recent years, supported by conceptual and technological developments in neuroscience. A foundation in neurobiology can help mental health practitioners understand how advances in neuroscience lead directly to advances in psychotherapy. We will discuss how interpersonal neurobiology (IPNB) in the etiology and treatment of anxiety disorders, and learn about some of the major concepts of INPB. This workshop will facilitate learning through a pedagogical model for understanding the etiology of stress and anxiety.
