Overview: Over the past couple of decades there has been an exciting merging of psychotherapy and neuroscience research that is revolutionizing clinical practice. Cognitive, affective, social, and positive neuroscience research provides profound insight into the brain changes we are capable of producing.

We are beginning to learn, through this research, how to enact these changes through the practice of psychotherapeutic techniques that target and improve the functioning of specific brain structures.

This webinar, led by clinical expert Dr. Jennifer Sweeton, shares the most up-to-date research discoveries and teaches highly effective psychotherapy techniques clinicians can begin using tomorrow.

Why should you Attend: Neuroscience research is providing insight into why, when, and with whom specific psychotherapeutic approaches may be beneficial to therapy clients. However, translating neuroscience research into clinical practice can be a daunting task, and very few licensed mental health professionals have specialized training in both neuroscience and psychotherapy. This webinar, presented by a clinician with a neuroscience background, bridges neuroscience research and clinical practice in a straightforward, digestible manner.

Attendees of this webinar will gain knowledge about the key brain areas involved in mental health and illness, and will be provided with examples of psychotherapeutic techniques that have been shown to alter those areas of the brain in the direction of health! For example, this webinar will include a discussion of the techniques that have been shown to alter the fear, memory and self-regulation centers of the brain. Scripts and instructions will be provided for the methods discussed, so that attendees can begin using these techniques immediately.

The top 5 areas of the brain involved in mental health and mental illness
