Psychotherapy Research covers all approaches to psychotherapy, including individual, group, couple and family therapy. Containing articles on a wide range of theoretical orientations for an international audience, the journal is designed to encourage the development of psychotherapy research, foster the utilization of research findings in training, practice and policy formation, and enhance the scientific quality and social relevance of psychotherapy research.
Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience investigates brain-behavior interaction and promotes lively interchange among the mind sciences. Contributions address both descriptions of function and underlying brain events and also reflect the interdisciplinary nature of the field covering developments in neuroscience, neuropsychology, cognitive psychology, neurobiology, linguistics, computer science, and philosophy.
Neural Computation disseminates important, multidisciplinary research results and reviews of research areas in neural computation-a field that attracts psychologists, physicists, computer scientists, neuroscientists, and artificial intelligence investigators, among others. For researchers looking at the twin scientific and engineering challenges of understanding the brain and building computers, it highlights common problems and techniques in modeling the brain, and the design and construction of neurally inspired information processing systems.
This chapter covers what is known about the development of normal and pathological dissociation. Although there are many theories and speculations about the developmental basis of dissociation, relatively little is known about it beyond the role of childhood trauma (see Chapter Four). Therefore, in addition to presenting the existing research data on the role of such factors as age, gender, genetics, culture, education/intelligence, and family environment, I discuss the DBS model's implications and predictions concerning these factors.
This study investigated the relationship between self-reported childhood abuse and dissociative symptoms and amnesia. The presence or absence of corroboration of recovered memories of childhood abuse was also studied.

Psychiatric Services was established in 1950 by Daniel Blain, M.D. It is published monthly by the American Psychiatric Association for mental health professionals and others concerned with treatment and services for persons with mental illnesses and mental disabilities, in keeping with APA objectives to improve care and treatment, to promote research and professional education in psychiatric and related fields, and to advance the standards of all psychiatric services and facilities.
Recent studies have shown that victims of childhood abuse and combat veterans actually experience physical changes to the hippocampus, a part of the brain involved in learning and memory, as well as in the handling of stress. The hippocampus also works closely with the medial prefrontal cortex, an area of the brain that regulates our emotional response to fear and stress. PTSD sufferers often have impairments in one or both of these brain regions.
Journal of Neuropsychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences presents original research and clinical reports related to the assessment and treatment of neuropsychiatric disorders, as well as the basic neurosciences underlying psychiatric and neuropsychiatric disorders.
