Description

Early in my career, I recognized a disconnect between neuroscience research and popular treatment strategies. While depression and anxiety are clearly rooted in altered brain function, most clinicians were not taught about specific neural circuits and neurotransmitters that contribute to these disorders. As a result, treating mood and anxiety disorders were often incomplete – many solutions uncovered by research were overlooked and strategies relied heavily on medication without any changes in a client’s action, activity and environment. There had to be a better way to treat these clients and improve outcomes!

Today, I know that using proven cognitive-behavioral interventions like Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), and Behavioral Activation Therapy (BAT) in conjunction with exercise, social support and positive habits yields powerful therapeutic effects. Expanding your tool kit of brain-based interventions allows you to accommodate your clients’ different challenges. And, when your clients understand that what feels “wrong” is actually the activity and chemistry of particular brain circuits, it improves treatment buy in and compliance.

Join me in this must attend conference and I will show you how:

  • The biology of stress, anxiety and depression informs cognitive therapies like ACT, MBCT, and BAT
  • Information provided by neuroscientific research can improve treatment outcomes
  • Simple interventions modulate the activity and chemistry of key brain regions
  • You can effectively teach clients about complicated brain structures and functions

Let me help you take your practice to the next level by connecting complicated research and neurobiological information to the work you do with clients each day.

Your satisfaction is guaranteed. Register today!

See you there,
Dr. Alex Korb
