1. Physicians (CME)
All other clinicians either will receive a CME Attendance Certificate or may choose any of the types of CE credit being offered.
To understand the role of stress in the manifestation of depressive symptoms.
At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:
• Describe the brain circuits associated with depressive symptom clusters
• Identify the multiple functions associated with reward systems (eg, anticipatory, consummatory)
• Explain how the frontal cortex affects cognition in depression
This continuing medical education activity is intended for psychiatrists, psychologists, primary care physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and other health care professionals who seek to improve their care for patients with mental health disorders.
