Description

You work hard to stay up to date on the latest developments to bring greater healing to your clients. And the field of neuroscience is filled with research that could help you improve effectiveness and efficiency in your practice.

But how do you separate useful information from findings that aren’t relevant to clinical work? How do you distinguish meaningful discoveries from dubious, even dangerous, pseudoscientific claims? And how do you link complicated scientific information to the real-world treatments you need to help clients with the mental health issues they face each day?

This recording will connect the latest findings in the fields of neuroscience and neurobiology to therapeutic interventions you can apply to everyday clinical situations. You’ll discover why neuroscience matters to therapy and learn to apply practical and adaptable tools based in cognitive therapy, attachment, mindfulness, behavioral activation, and positive psychology to the treatment of anxiety, stress, trauma, and depression.

Don’t let confusing scientific jargon and research lead you toward risky misunderstandings or keep you from upgrading your practice by adding a neuroscience informed approach to your clinical work.

Cut through the frustrations of interpreting complex scientific research, and build the confidence you need to bring the brain into therapy!

Objectives

Communicate how an understanding of neuroscientific research and neurological processes can help mental health professionals improve clinical outcomes.
  1. Establish the interrelationship between depression and anxiety and communicate how this information can be used in relation to treatment planning.
  2. Employ psychoeducation techniques that improve engagement in therapy by making neuroscience and neuroplasticity understandable for clients.
  3. Formulate treatment plans that consider the limitations of medication based models and give clinicians options with depressed clients when medication doesn’t adequately relieve symptoms.
  4. Analyze how neural pathways regulating stress are related to mental health disorders, and connect this information to your utilization of therapeutic interventions to manage the symptoms of anxiety.
  5. Articulate how mindfulness practices can be used in therapy to shift clients to a relaxation response.
  6. Evaluate how memory influences emotion and understand the clinical implications for altering client’s perceptions and behaviors.
  7. Assess how childhood trauma changes the developmental trajectory of the brain, and explore the clinical manifestations of these impacts.
  8. Elucidate how techniques that intervene in the neurobiological fight, flight, or freeze response can be used in the treatment of trauma.
  9. Characterize how attachment impacts the brain’s development and informs the clinical treatment of affect regulation and mood disorders.
  10. Determine how an understanding of the relationship between diet, sleep and exercise can be used in-session to motivate your clients to make healthier choices in their lives.
  11. Appraise the latest scientific research on gratitude and establish how it could be used therapeutically to benefit clients dealing with stress, anxiety and depression.
