Description

Even as we look to the latest brain research for techniques to apply in our therapeutic work, we too often neglect the damaging impacts of stress, poor lifestyle choices, and overstimulation from digital devices on our brains and bodies. To recharge ourselves and better serve our clients, you’ll explore how to:

  • Implement lifestyle choices that protect the physical brain as our clients age, and extend the “health span” portion of our lifespan
  • Apply the tools of self-directed neuroplasticity in therapy that help reverse the impact of stress and trauma on emotional regulation, learning and memory, and empathy
  • Engage clients with practices such as guided visualizations and process journaling that can enhance the higher brain’s capacity for response flexibility, discernment, planning, creativity, and imagination
  • Apply interventions that help prevent/reverse addiction to digital technology and recover capacities for focused attention and concentration, relational intimacy, introspection, and self-reflection
  • Use valuable resources in the latest findings about the brain and the mind-body connection
