Practical Neuroscience for Therapists

This one-day workshop presents the fundamentals of cutting-edge neurobiology most relevant for clinical practice. Concepts and research findings will be discussed in terms of clear principles that both explain symptomatology and suggest the most effective strategies and techniques for healing.

Topics will include:

  • Dissociation and how to work with it
  • Brain plasticity
  • The physiology of affect dysregulation
  • The effects of attachment/relational trauma on brain development
  • Memory

Therapists will gain:

  • A model of neurobiology to guide clinical decision-making
  • Principles of intervention and healing grounded in neuroscience research
  • Tools to calm the limbic brain and bring the thinking brain online
  • Techniques to manage flashbacks and hyperarousal
