Event Description

Recent advances in neuroscience have increased our knowledge of how and why people change. Brain-based therapy synthesizes neuroscience, evidence-based treatment, psychotherapy research, and attachment theory into a hybrid therapeutic model. This model helps identify which elements of psychotherapeutic schools are effective and which may be counter-therapeutic.

Brain-based therapy envisions the therapeutic process as brain changing as necessary to change mood and behavior. The model proposes moving beyond the theoretical school paradigm.

This training will examine the use of brain-based therapy to enhance outcome with people who have been traumatized. The role that brain function plays in mood, memory and behaviour will be identified, including discussions on the difference between male and female brains, the middle aged brain and how alcohol affects the brain. Special attention will be given to addressing the neurodynamics of PTSD and the crucial role of memory.

Using a synthesized model of neuroscience, attachment theory and evidence-based treatment, you will learn how to more effectively treat clients with PTSD.

In this training you will develop a new way of looking at the therapeutic process enabling you to move beyond the traditional theoretical school approach. You will learn how to use the Brain-Based Therapy approach to educate your clients and make the goals of treatment understandable.
