Steven Hollon of Vanderbilt University will present his research findings that raise concerns that cognitive therapy provided in combination with medication does little to prevent recurrence of depression.

He will examine whether the addition of antidepressant medications to cognitive therapy (CT) has an iatrogenic effect that interferes with CT's known enduring effect on depression.

This lecture is sponsored by the Center for Research on Families’ Tay Gavin Erickson Lecture Series. The Center for Research on Families is an endowed interdisciplinary research center in the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences and College of Natural Sciences. The Tay Gavin Erickson Lecture Series brings internationally recognized speakers with expertise in family research to campus each year. The lecture series began in 1999 through an endowment established in memory of Tay Gavin Erickson.
