About this book

TIMBER psychotherapy is a novel, translational and biomarker informed, mindfulness-based cognitive behavioral therapy approach that addresses some of the current treatment gaps for PTSD, depression and traumatic psychosis. This treatment manual offers practitioners and patients alike a step-by-step guide to TIMBER (acronym for Trauma Interventions using Mindfulness Based Extinction and Reconsolidation of memories) psychotherapy, and has been divided into four parts: Understanding Complex Trauma and Traumatic Psychosis; Methodology and Application; Training Professionals; and Policy Implications & Future Research Directions. In addition to a strong rationale and evidence base for the TIMBER approach, the book also provides case examples accompanied by videos (available separately). Its special features include reproducible client handouts, assessment tools, and a list of resources for training to use TIMBER. 

About the authors

Basant Pradhan, MD works in the Cooper University Health System, Camden, New Jersey as an Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Pediatrics where he also serves as the Interim Chief of Psychiatry and the founding medical director of the neuro-modulation interventions and disorder specific Yoga and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (Y-MBCT) programs. In his pre-medical career, he was a Yogi/monk in a monastery in India. In addition to extensive training in psychiatry and psychotherapies, he has trained in clinical neurology, clinical psychology and cognitive neurosciences which greatly inspires him to combine psychotherapy with the brain science and spirituality for diagnostic and treatment purposes. His clinical and research work since 2001 has focused on the development and application of the standardized Yoga and meditation modules as standalone treatments and also in combination with medications and neuro-modulation interventions (TMS, Ketamine, ECT) for many chronic and often difficult-to-treat neuropsychiatric conditions such as treatment resistant depression, PTSD, psychosis, addictive disorders, and also cognitive disorders such as dyslexia and Huntington’s disease. His research has advanced the understanding about neurobiology and therapeutics of the neuropsychiatric disorders and also is aimed at clarifying the pros and cons of psychiatric medications for the young. Pradhan has been awarded with the Institutional Bronze Medal from the Prime Minister of India and has been listed in the registry of the Marquis: Who’s Who in America. His research has received grant awards from organization like the National Institute on Aging (NIA/NIH), the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation (NARSAD) and the Huntington Study Group, USA. He has lectured at national and international events and published his research widely. Also, he has served the executive council of many reputed organizations such as the Group for the Advancement of Psychiatry (GAP) and the National Caucus on Integrative Psychiatry.
