The latest findings from neuroscience have given us incredible insights into the workings of the brain and its connection to our psychological and physical well-being. Yet in-depth studies on the brain can be difficult for mental health clinicians to interpret -names like “Subgenual anterior cingulate cortex” mean very little to most of us.
And you face a bigger obstacle than terminology. How do you overcome the challenge of applying complicated scientific and biological information to your clinical practice? How does neuroscience help you when you’re face-to-face with clients working on stress, depression, addiction and the other problems they face each day?
This recording will connect critical concepts from science and biology to your clinical work with anxiety, depression, chronic pain, substance abuse and trauma.
Better still, you’ll go beyond the biological mechanisms that underlie various disorders with detailed instruction on actual treatment strategies you can use with your clients. Through case studies, experiential exercises, and brief lectures you’ll learn to individualize interventions based in Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, Attachment, and Somatic Psychologies and apply them to the treatment of mood disorders, trauma, addictions, and more.
Better still, you’ll have the opportunity to practice the application of what you’ve learned under the skilled supervision of our instructor, and take home detailed handouts allowing their immediate incorporation into your clinical work.
Cut through the baffling research and inaccessible jargon, and discover how understanding neuroscience can change the way you view and work with your clients!
