Weakened cortical regions of the brain make it difficult for some traumatized clients to think clearly, focus, make decisions, and fully engage in other executive functions. However, these areas of the brain can be strengthened with practice, using various cognitive techniques. This seminar gives an overview of decentering, cognitive defusion, and cognitive restructuring, and teaches clinicians practical cognitive tools that can help clients strengthen their prefrontal cortex and cingulate and improve cognitive flexibility, focus, and the ability to manage distressing thoughts. No previous NDIT training is required for this course, but completion of this course counts toward NDIT certification (which will be offered starting late 2024).
