Therapy Techniques Based on Neuroscience

Bring the latest findings from neuroscience into your treatments. Learn Interventions that have been associated with sustainable brain change, including those that can alter brain pathways and networks to help treat trauma, anxiety, depression, and addiction.

This seminar teaches you how to promote healthy transformation and recovery in the brains of those experiencing trauma, stress, addiction, anxiety, and depression. By initiating this healthy brain change using top-down, bottom-up, and horizontal methods, you add new capacity for progress to each therapy session.
