Mind-Brain-Gene: Toward Psychotherapy Integration
Brain-Based Therapy: A cross-cultural and trans-theoretical integration
Recent advances in the neurosciences have increased our knowledge of how and why people change and have produced a sea change in psychotherapy. This seminar will examine which aspects of prevailing theoretical orientations are therapeutic and which ones are counter-therapeutic. Brain-Based Therapy synthesizes neuroscience, evidence-based treatment, and attachment theory into a hybrid therapeutic model. Using this model, treatment strategies for depression and anxiety disorders will be examined. Participants will develop a new way of conceptualizing the therapeutic process and move beyond the traditional theoretical school approach.
For General Audiences:

During the last few years several magazines published feature articles on the new advances in Neuroscience. Neuroplasticity, Mirror Cells, Neurogenesis, and the “Social Brain” have become terms discussed on radio shows and newspaper articles. These findings have dramatically affected our understanding of what occurs in your brain. If you’re like most people you’ll want to learn more about how these developments can be applied to your practical life.
This talk is based on recent developments in Neuroscience and Evidence-based treatment (treatments that have been found to work best). It is based on his book Rewire Your Brain and is a companion to the professional books: Brain-Based Therapy: Adult and Brain-Based Therapy: Child. These two books, address how the developments in Neuroscience and Evidence-based treatment can be applied in therapy.
This talk describes how to “rewire” your brain based on well researched principles that work. The presentation will guide you through the process of changing your brain so you can change your life. Simply put, you cannot change how you think and feel without changing your brain.
