Dr. David Yusko — The laid back psych who knows OCD, Anxiety, and PTSD

Today on the bonus episode, Dr. David Yusko.


Today on the bonus episode, Dr. David Yusko. David is the Associate Director at the Center for the Treatment and Study of Anxiety in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. He received his Psy.D. in clinical psychology from the Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology at Rutgers University where his training specialized in cognitive behavioral treatments for addictive behaviors. Since joining the CTSA faculty, Dr. Yusko has extended his interest in addictions to the development of effective treatments for co-occurring posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and substance use. Dr. Yusko specializes in Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE) for PTSD, Exposure, and Response Prevention (EX/RP) for OCD, and cognitive-behavioral treatment for social anxiety, panic disorder, specific phobias, and generalized anxiety. He is also a substance abuse counselor for the NFL (kind of cool). One intimate moment of the podcast was the sharing of my dad and his likely PTSD.

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
