Mountain Valley Treatment Center located in Pike, NH was honored to host Jonathan Abramowitz, Ph.D. in June. Dr. Abramowitz, Professor and Associate Chair of the Department of Psychology and Clinical Program at University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, spent two days with the Mountain Valley Clinical Team updating our clinicians on the latest Obssessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) research and providing case consults.
Mountain Valley is collaborating on a research project with Dr. Abramowitz and Lillian Reuman, MA. The project is looking to examine psychological predictors for sympton accommodation in families. The study will use clinical interviews and self-report surveys to gather data among co-residing relatives of individuals diagnosed with fear-based disorders. Mountain Valley is in an ideal position to help Dr. Abramowitz and Reuman with this research due to our narrow focus treating fear-based disorders like specific phobias and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
