Taming the Amygdala
Copyright :


Treatment of anxiety is more effective when it is rooted in an understanding of neuroscience.  Therapists need clear neuroscience explanations that they can readily use with the diverse variety of clients suffering from anxiety.  In this workshop, you will not only learn effective, brain-based strategies for calming the anxious brain, but also learn how to explain the strategies to clients in ways that motivate change.   

Understand how to identify the roots of anxiety in the amygdala and provide effective interventions to tame the amygdala.  Learn how “the language of the amygdala” can be explained in an accessible, straightforward way, empowering clients to change their brains to resist anxiety.  Help clients identify how the cortex causes the amygdala to produce anxiety, and train them in strategies to resist anxiety-igniting cognitions.
