About this Seminar
Varieties of Cognitive Bias Modification (CBM) have been developed and tested in addiction, with evidence of efficacy when added to the treatment of alcohol use disorders across clinical trials. Originally, these interventions were based on dual process models of addiction, with the assumption that CBM would impact associative (automatically activated cognitive-motivational) processes, while traditional therapy would impact reflective processes. However, basic research has undermined this perspective, leading to the development of a new propositional variety of CBM, ABC training (Wiers et al., 2020), which Dr. Wiers will describe and present first data on.
This is a free event hosted by the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute and co-sponsored by the institute's Addiction Recovery Research Center and the Center for Health Behaviors Research. The Pioneers in Biomedical Research Seminar Series, which runs annually from September to May, has featured leading biomedical researchers from throughout the country since the program began in 2012. The lectures are also open to all members of the Virginia Tech community including graduate students, undergraduates, faculty, and staff, as well as the public.
