Neuroscience in the Therapy Room

No longer available….


Should therapists embrace neuroscience?

 This workshop will examine the debate about neuroscience’s relevance to therapy, and provide an introduction to the subject so that participants can judge for themselves.  The seminar will cover some basic ground and will then address the current understanding of the right and left hemisphere’s of the brain – and the neuroscience views on attachment and affect regulation. We will reflect together on ways to bring an understanding of the nervous system into therapeutic work .
