Addressing the neurotic paradox: new approaches to treating emotional disorders
Neurotic disorders dominated the landscape of psychopathology for almost a century before dying a sudden and traumatic death in 1980 with the publication of the DSM-III. The cause was unbearably heavy theoretical baggage and acute empirical insufficiencies. But the study of the temperament of neuroticism lived on, mostly in the laboratories of developmental and personality psychologists. Now, research has delineated empirically supported common dimensions shared by all anxiety, mood, and related emotional disorders, including higher-order temperaments, mood distortions and dysregulations, and extent and types of avoidance. In this presentation, I suggest a new integrative diagnostic scheme for the emotional disorders, as well as a unified transdiagnostic treatment addressing shared higher-order temperamental factors.

For the first time in the United States, Creating Connections 2016 brought together the world's most-renowned and followed neuroscience and psychotherapy experts as they focused on the continuing impact of cutting-edge science. All previous Creating Connections conferences have been held in Efteling, the Netherlands, since their inception in 2011.
The practice of psychotherapy is undergoing a revolution because of the latest research showing the ways people are wired for relationships and how they can employ innate tools for managing those relationships. The researchers and scientists at Creating Connections 2016 helped attendees and viewers develop their own framework and techniques for applying this science in their work with adults, couples, children, and families.
