Neuroscience in the Consulting Room by Daniel Siegel
Understanding the neurobiology of the brain not only explains how change happens, it also translates into more effective psychotherapy. In this dynamic workshop, a psychotherapist and a neuropsychiatrist offer a dialogue demonstrating the relevance of neuroscience to the process of repairing couples’ relationships. Together, the presenters will review recorded couples therapy sessions to explore how neurobiological insights can inform and help shape a therapist’s moment-by-moment decision-making. You’ll discover how to:
- “Read” clients’ facial and body language as outward signs of their brain function and emotional processing
- Use this knowledge to select and time interventions more effectively
- Make your interventions more efficient by tapping into the processes of relational regulation
- Determine when clients can’t self-soothe or access higher brain functions and intervene accordingly
- Overview of couple’s therapy
- Recognizing EFT in therapy
- Using a clear, systematic approaches to get the best outcomes – Attachment Theory
- Experiencing couple’s therapy: discover how relationships affect the brain with Daniel Siegel
- Exposure to a recorded couple’s therapy session
- Discussion of interventions and change processes with Dan Siegel
- Intervention exercises to be completed by participants
- Concluding remarks with Sue Johnson and Daniel Siegel
- Explaining client vulnerabilities and what it means for treatment
- Techniques to help couples change and grow through each other for a better sense of self
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.
