Evidence–based guidance for optimally coordinating CBT with drug therapy for a range of main presenting problems

An expert in both CBT as well as psychopharmacology, Dr. Sudak explores the effects of psychotherapy and medication on the brain, based on recent neuroimaging and neurobiological studies.
