At Behavioral Sciences of Alabama, we bring over 100 years’combined experience and a multidisciplinary approach to your care and treatment. We have psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors, and other mental health professionals available to help you and your family find direction in this fast-paced, confusing world. We also provide evidence-based intervention for improved working memory and evaluations of working memory problems.

 

Mrs. Futch and Mr. Bakke are trained in the use of Cogmed working memory training. Since January 2012 we have successfully used working memory training with children and adults with attention-deficits (ADHD), traumatic brain injury (TBI), stroke, and adults experiencing memory loss. Dr. Barnhart is the quality assurance person responsible for oversight of the program’s use.

 

As a matter of practice philosophy, our therapists follow a cognitive behavior therapy approach. We understand that talk isn’t enough. Writing things down, between-session homework, focusing on small steps in behavior change and action plans are essential components of treatment. Data continues to accumulate supporting the cognitive therapy model for treatment of panic disorder, social anxiety, generalized anxiety disorder, childhood depressive and anxiety disorders, childhood somatic disorder, marital distress, anger, bulimia nervosa, acute stress disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and chronic pain and more.
