Description

Have you ever been asked why therapy works? What are the actual mechanisms of change when working with clients suffering from anxiety, trauma, stress, depression and substance use disorders?

Neuroscience is providing incredible insights into the workings of our brains and helping us to answer age old questions about the connection between our biology and our mental health. While modern understandings of concepts like neuroplasticity help us to explain that change is truly possible, neuroscience also helps us to begin to see why and how techniques might improve emotion regulation, concentration, the ability to restructure unhelpful thoughts, and engage in healthier behaviors.

This recording will connect complicated science and biological concepts to your clinical treatment of anxiety, trauma, stress, depression and substance abuse!

Through captivating and thought-provoking lecture our instructor will show you why neuroscience matters to therapy, make the latest research accessible and user-friendly, and clearly link it to your clinical work.

More than just the neurobiological “whats and whys” of various disorders, you’ll also learn the hows of actual treatment …

  • How to engage your clients with understandable explanations of the link between mental health disorders and biology.
  • How to draw on multiple modalities, adjunctive treatments and approaches including Cognitive Therapy, Attachment, Mindfulness, Behavioral Activation, and Positive Psychology.
  • How to employ practical and adaptable tools with top-down, bottom-up, and horizontal methods.

Leave this recording understanding the neuroscience behind why therapy works and connect it to the practical approaches you can use with clients in your everyday practice!
