July 21 — School of Nursing professor publishes article in national psychiatric journal Philippe Goldin, a neuroscientist and professor at the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing, published an article in the peer-reviewed journal, JAMA Psychiatry. The article, “Evaluation of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy vs. Mindfulness Mediation in Brain Changes During Reappraisal and Acceptance Among Patients with Social Anxiety Disorder,” focused on a clinical trial Philippe led with researchers from Stanford University. The study included 108 adults diagnosed with social anxiety disorder. It explored if cognitive behavior group therapy and mindfulness-based stress reduction reduce symptoms. By studying brain scans of the participants during and up to one-year post treatment, the researchers found both treatments reduced social anxiety symptoms. JAMA Psychiatry is an international peer-reviewed journal for clinicians, scholars, and research scientists in psychiatry, mental health, behavioral science and related fields. Philippe’s research uses brain scans, or functional neuroimaging, to explore how different types of interventions impact brain activity, emotion reactivity and regulation, attention regulation and self-views.
