Treating trauma can be stressful and difficult, even for the most experienced clinicians. And while evidence-based therapies show promise for helping many clients, sometimes the best approaches fail, leaving clinicians confused and unsure of what to try next. However, sometimes the reason for the failures is not that clinicians are choosing the wrong approach, broadly, but rather, the clinicians are doing the right things at the wrong time, and in the wrong order.
Brain science tells us not only on the types of techniques that show promise for helping clients recover from trauma, but also the optimal “order of operations” of trauma treatment; that is, the types of techniques that are most likely to help at specific times, and in what order. With a basic understanding of neuroplasticity (which is essentially how the brain changes), and the main brain areas associated with post trauma symptoms, you’ll be equipped to help, and better trouble-shoot, your most challenging traumatized clients!
Attendees will learn the basics of neuropsychotherapy, including the rules of brain change and key brain regions involved in mental health. In addition, this seminar emphasizes how to put this knowledge to use, bridging brain science and treatment, and teaching attendees several practical techniques for trauma recovery. Your FREE registration includes admittance to the live webinar, access to the recorded seminar (if you’d like to review the material, or if you can’t make the live webinar), and a FREE Brain Science Toolkit, which includes step-by-step instructions for over 20 practical trauma recovery skills.
This training will provide participants clinical knowledge and tools to:
a). State at least three components of neural networks.
b). Learn and practice at least two techniques that aim to promote healthy brain change.
c). Name at least three brain areas associated with post trauma symptoms.
d). State the five steps of the “Trauma Treatment Roadmap”
e). State the three steps of memory reconsolidation.
f). Describe the objectives of neuropsychotherapy.
The target audience for this event includes psychologists, social workers, counselors, MFT’s, psychiatrists and other clinical mental health professionals.
