Welcome to The Behavioral Medicine Report.
I want to take a moment in my first post to introduce myself and this website. My name is Christopher Fisher, M.A. I have master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, and I am currently a 4th year doctoral student in Clinical Health Psychology and Behavioral Medicine at the University of North Texas. My doctoral program is somewhat unique in its multidisciplinary approach. In addition to traditional clinical psychology courses, students in our program study health psychology, pharmacology, physiology, applied behavioral analysis, immunology, and even biofeedback. I chose to further specialize in neurofeedback (“EEG Biofeedback” or “Neurotherapy”), Cranial Electrical Stimulation (“CES”), and quantitative EEG (“QEEG” or “brainmapping”). Don’t worry if some of this sounds foreign to you. I’ll explain more on these and other topics in future posts.
In coming the weeks and months, I plan to update this website as often as my time allows and when there is something interesting to talk about. I am very excited about psychology and its cognitive and behavioral based treatments, as well as “alternative” treatments such as neurofeedback and CES. My nose is seemingly buried in books and research articles much of the time, and I frequently come across interesting and/or vital psychology research I want to share with the public. I will do my best to keep the discussions in laymen’s terms; after all, this website is worthless if no one understands what I am talking about. Enjoy!
