Baltimore, Maryland

More information and to REGISTER

Each year our Symposium strives to improve knowledge and treatment of mood disorders.
Speakers who have been selected will address treatment interventions which use current technology and transcendental meditation, given the trends of using mindfulness based treatments.

Families are integral to our annual symposium and play a critical role in the management of psychiatric illness.

Consistent with our tradition, recognizing the collaborative relationships between care providers, patients and their families, Dr. Karen Swartz and Dr. J. Raymond DePaulo, Jr., will interview:
Hope Jahren, author of Lab Girl, and Dr. and Mrs. Robert Gallo.

Featured speakers include:

  • Kay Jamison, PhD, “Women Writers on Mania and Depression”
  • Guy Goodwin, MD, “More Than Just a Phone? Use Your Cell to Stay Well”
  • Norman Rosenthal, MD, “ The Potential Value of Transcendental Meditation in the Treatment of Mood Disorders”
  • Francis Mondimore, MD, “ I’m Listening! Feedback Informed Treatment of Mood Disorders”

*The Symposium in no longer a Continuing Medical Education event. The goal was to make the Symposium more affordable for patients and family members and the associated costs with providing CME credit have become too great.
