2018 Erikson Institute Fall Conference for Clinicians and Scholars
Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health
DUALITY’S END: Computational Psychiatry and the Neuroscience of Representation
at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Stockbridge, MA
Conference Director: Andrew J. Gerber, MD, PhD
DUALITY’S END: Computational Psychiatry and the Neuroscience of Representation brings together, for the first time, experts in the psychology and neuroscience of representation with experts in the emerging field of computational psychiatry for a two-day conference at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, a premier destination in Western Massachusetts. The conference, sponsored by the Erikson Institute for Education and Research of the Austen Riggs Center, aims to explore opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration between these two fields and to move toward an end to the enduring mind-brain dichotomy in the conceptualization and treatment of mental illness.
The Austen Riggs Center has a long and distinguished history at the interface of cutting-edge theories of the mind and the treatment of individuals with complex psychiatric problems. This conference continues that tradition by bringing together disparate voices that, when joined together, promise to dramatically advance mental health research and treatment.
