What conference attendees said about this speaker and lecture:
"Dr. Ciechanowski's talk on Diapression was excellent as always—I could listen to a day's conference presented by him regarding the aspects of dealing with chronic illness. Specifically, I found the "decisional balance" grid and the review of symptom amplication to be helpful."
"Diapression by Dr. Ciechanowski was excellent and very pertinent to everyday life. If we don't treat depression, patients can't focus on managing their chronic conditions."
