Dr. Allen Weg, VP of OCDNJ, sent out this note after the presentation about DVD's, and I thought I would pass it on, because it sounds like a useful resource:
. . . if you were not at our meeting last night (and, actually, even if you were), and you are interested in the latest in medication options for OCD, you should consider ordering a DVD of Dr. Steven Poskar's presentation. It was an incredibly thorough and exhaustive review of what is out there, including some of the newest avenues of research. If interested, call OCDNJ President Ina Spero at 732-828-0099.
Dr. Steven Poskar is a certified Diplomate in Psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. He specializes in psychopharmacology and cognitive behavioral therapy at the Spectrum Neuroscience and Treatment Institute in New York City.
Dr. Poskar is a co-founder and current Vice President of OCDNY, the NY affiliate of International OCD Foundation. He is a member of the International OCD Foundation’s Body Dysmorphic Disorder, Hoarding and Autism Spectrum Disorder Special Interest Group.
Dr., Poskar’s presentation is entitled, “Pharmacological Treatment of OCD: The very latest developments in exploring options.” This presentation is an exhaustive review of the many medication options now available for those struggling with OCD and those treating them, including the very latest information on approaching the psychopharmacological treatment of OCD, not only by targeting serotonin and dopamine sites, but glutamate abnormalities as well.
