Psychiatrist: Psychotherapy Can Help Change The Brain

In a letter to the editor of the New York Times (7/22, A26, Subscription Publication), John M. Oldham, MD, MS, a past president of the American Psychiatric Association, writes in response to Psychiatry’s Identity Crisis that if psychotherapy is “done right and done long enough, it can help change the brain in ways that can stick. We just have to help each other do it.”
