Bring the latest findings from neuroscience into your treatments.
Learn interventions to literally alter the brain’s neurons, structures, pathways, and networks. Recent research reveals that neuroplasticity takes place all through life, so you can offer hope for real nervous system change no matter how long your client has suffered.
You will discover how and where neuroplasticity occurs, and ways to use it therapeutically. You gain the background you need through enjoyable experiences combined with clear principles for utilizing the nervous system in your work.
Learn how to think multi-dimensionally as you see the brain in 3-D and sense it in action. Then you will be able to draw on multiple modalities to overcome resistances, activate creative responses, and turn problems into potentials.
This live webcast teaches you how to promote transformation in the traumatized, stressed, addicted, anxious, and depressed brain in positive ways.
By initiating change using top-down, bottom-up, and horizontal methods, you add new dimensions to each therapy session. This live webcast gives you tools through concepts and experiences to help you build your own techniques for creative individualizing.
And in the process, you will find yourself feeling more relaxed, alert, and present as you activate your own brain in positive ways!
