Came across this while browsing a provider's website. I did some googling and the results mostly talked about where to get this certification and some providers who have it. Has anyone ever heard of this? Is it legit or just another way to pad the CV? Looking at the website, it seems that Evergreen Certifications (formerly IATP apparently) also offers several other certifications including anxiety, anger, and compassion fatigue. My scam radar is going off, but I figured I'd ask.

Instead, random assignment was used to determine what treatment(s) children received. While this randomization is an essential part of a controlled study, in community settings, parents decide what initial and subsequent treatment their child receives. Thus, finding that pa...

The potential role of several differentially expressed genes, including ABCB5, RGS2, GAK, GIT1 and 3 members of the galactose metabolism pathway (GALE, GALT, GALK1) are substantiated by prior associat...

This study assessed the impact of a recent (within past year) diagnosis of a mental disorder - including attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), bipolar disorder, depression and schizophrenia - on the risk for COVID-19 infection and related mortality and hospitalization rates. We analyzed a nation-wide database of electronic health records of 61 million adult patients from 360 hospitals and 317,000 providers, across 50 states in the US, up to July 29, 2020. Patients with a recent diagnosis of a mental disorder had a significantly increased risk for COVID-19 infection, an effect strongest for depression (adjusted o...
