The Neuroscience of Psychotherapy

Join us for this live webinar event
April 28, 2023 -- 4:00 - 6:10 pm Eastern Daylight Time
2 CE Credits available for behavioral health clinicians

Bring the latest findings from neuroscience into your treatments! Several evidence-informed approaches to psychotherapy can be immensely helpful to clients. However, even the best therapies don’t work for a lot of clients. A key reason for this is that clinicians often do the right things and the wrong time, working against how the brain heals, instead of with it.

This seminar, taught by a neuroscientist and psychologist, bridges brain science and therapy application. Clinicians attending this training will gain an understanding of the neuroscience of psychotherapy and learn how to better apply therapeutic techniques, increasing their effectiveness with clients. Specifically, this seminar outlines for attendees some key areas involved in mental illness, and provides examples of psychotherapeutic techniques that have been shown to alter those areas of the brain in the direction of health and recovery. You will leave this seminar feeling confident about how to take a brain-based approach to psychotherapy, equipped with therapeutic tools and techniques you can start using tomorrow!
