Catalyzing Brain Change: Transforming Adversity into Learning and Growth
Helping clients develop flexible and adaptive strategies for coping with both everyday disappointments and extraordinary disasters is at the heart of the therapeutic process. In this workshop, we’ll focus on showing clients how to harness their own brain’s capacity for rewiring negative coping patterns that block growth. We’ll also identify empirically validated tools to encode new, more flexible patterns of response.
