Integrated Biobehavioral Treatment of Migraine: A Focus on Children, Adolescents, and Young Adults

Scott W. Powers, PhD, ABPP, FAHS
Register for Webinar

This webinar is available at no charge to National Register Health Service Psychologists, National Register Practice Academy members, and Canadian Register Health Service Psychologists. Psychology doctoral students and trainees may also attend at no charge. Non-member psychologists and other healthcare providers may register for $35 (some State Psychological Association members and affiliates receive discounted access, please check with your Association’s central office for details).

About the Webinar

Migraine is the second most disabling disease in the world, yet it is underdiagnosed, under-recognized, and undertreated. Migraine most often begins in adolescence or young adulthood, affecting over 10% of the population, and continues as a chronic illness throughout the majority of life. Based on evidence from Phase 3 clinical trials with adults and youth, a combination of behavioral therapy with a pill-based prevention strategy is optimal care in terms of reducing headache days and related disability. This webinar will take a pediatric viewpoint to discuss this field and will highlight treatments that work and current efforts to understand brain and pain processing mechanisms that may drive the success of biobehavioral therapies.

Registration and CE Credit

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email. National Register Health Service Psychologists, National Register Practice Academy members, Canadian Register Health Service Psychologists, and paid attendees will earn one (1) CE credit upon successful completion of the webinar and evaluation. Doctoral students and trainees attending at no charge are not eligible for CE credit. A recording of the webinar presentation will be available on the week following the conclusion of the live session.

Dr. Powers is currently the principal investigator for two R01 awards: Distinct Mechanisms of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Effects in Youth with Migraine: Insights from Neuroimaging and Quantitative Sensory Testing (R01NS101321) and Dissecting Neural Mechanisms Supporting Mind and Body Approaches to Pain Reduction in Youth with Migraine (R01AT010171). He has been an NIH-funded PI continuously since 1996, including “Drug and Non-Drug Treatment of Pediatric Chronic Headache (R01NS050536),” “The Childhood and Adolescent Migraine Prevention Trial – CHAMP Study (U01NS076788),” and “Research Training in Child Behavior and Nutrition” (T32 DK063929-year 16).” Dr. Powers has 173 publications, including high-impact clinical trial reports in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), the New England Journal of Medicine, and JAMA Pediatrics. He is also the Scientific Director for Clinical Research and Trials for the Cincinnati Children’s Research Foundation, leading efforts to support industry-sponsored, federally sponsored, and internally funded trials.
