Apply Polyvagal and Memory Reconsolidation Theories with Parts Work, Somatic, and Mindful Approaches by Kate Cohen-Posey
You may be excited about cutting-edge advances in brain research, but do you know how to translate them into practical methods that may reduce clients’ resistance, transform deeply disturbing emotions, and reinforce treatment interventions? Clients can be taught to locate hidden strengths and dissolve distress by activating their brains’ reward centers. In this workshop, we’ll use tools developed from memory reconsolidation and Polyvagal Theory.

More information about Medical:
Medicine is the science and practice of establishing the diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, and prevention of disease.
Medicine encompasses a variety of health care practices evolved to maintain and restore health by the prevention and treatment of illness.
Contemporary medicine applies biomedical sciences, biomedical research, genetics, and medical technology to diagnose, treat, and prevent injury and disease,
typically through pharmaceuticals or surgery, but also through therapies as diverse as psychotherapy, external splints and traction, medical devices, biologics, and ionizing radiation, amongst others.
Medicine has been around for thousands of years, during most of which it was an art (an area of skill and knowledge) frequently having connections to the religious and
philosophical beliefs of local culture. For example, a medicine man would apply herbs and say prayers for healing, or an ancient philosopher and physician would apply bloodletting according to the theories of humorism.
In recent centuries, since the advent of modern science, most medicine has become a combination of art and science (both basic and applied, under the umbrella of medical science).
While stitching technique for sutures is an art learned through practice, the knowledge of what happens at the cellular and molecular level in the tissues being stitched arises through science.
