UNC Online Chat: “Everything You Want to Know About Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and IBS” on August 14, 2012

The University of North Carolina Center for Functional Gastrointestinal and Motility Disorders has announced the next online chat in its “Evening with the Experts” series. It will take place Tuesday, August 14, 2012 from 8:00-10:00 p.m. Eastern time.  Jeffrey Lackner, Psy.D., Director of the Behavioral Medicine Clinic and Associate Professor at the University of Buffalo School of Medicine will present on the topic of “Everything You Want to Know About Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and IBS.”

Dr. Lackner is also the author of a book geared toward people with IBS on the subject of self-help cognitive behavioral therapy methods for IBS. Its title is Controlling IBS the Drug Free Way: A 10 Step Plan for Symptom Relief.

People with IBS, and/or their concerned family members and friends are encouraged to make time to attend and participate in this and other UNC chats, which are an excellent, unique opportunity to interact directly with leading researchers, ask questions and give them feedback about our needs and concerns.

To participate in this or any UNC chat, go to the Center home page about 10 minutes before the starting time, click on the chat icon and follow the instructions given there. Many past video presentations are archived on the Center website, but the actual chat sessions are conducted live and are not archived.

Those who are unfamiliar with UNC’s online chat series may also find this previous post by IBS Impact on July 29, 2011 to be of interest.
