Description

Dan Siegel and Rick Hanson address how we can separate hype and pseudo-science from clinically relevant facts about the brain, plus ways in which understanding neuroscientific principles can actually make you a more effective therapist. They’ll examine:

  • the benefits, side effects, and limitations of getting to know the brain
  • how therapists can use brain science to better understand and facilitate the client’s change process
  • recent criticisms of “mindless” neuroscience that point to the at times dangerous allure of brain research
  • ways in which neuroscientific research has informed and expanded the field of psychotherapy, for better and for worse

OBJECTIVES

  1. How to use brain science to better understand and facilitate the client’s change process.

OUTLINE

  • Culture and Synapses
  • Three Aspects of Experience
  • Interpersonal Neurobiology
  • Two Fundamental Differences in Memory Systems
  • Energy and Negativity Bias
  • The "Biggest Traps" in Mental Health
