Description

  • The very latest understanding of neuroscience and its implications for treatment
  • Strategies straight from neuroscience
  • Discover how therapy enhances neuroplasticity and decreases mental distress
  • Psychotherapy approaches that are supported by neuroscientific findings

We now know that all new learning depends on neuroplastic changes in the brain—the positive changes we see as a result of psychotherapy are no exception. Because of this, when you provide treatment and practice psychotherapy, you are an unwitting neuroscientist, optimizing plasticity though the caring relationships and the various techniques you employ in treatment.

Learn how to take full advantage of our new understanding of the brain to optimize the treatment you provide and improve the outcomes of your clients. Don’t miss this opportunity to understand neuroscience from one of the leading experts in the field. Dr. Louis Cozolino will provide you the very latest understanding and perspectives of psychotherapy and neuroscience.
