Our increasingly refined understanding of the various brain processes underlying healthy self-regulation offers clinicians of all orientations a clearer map than ever of how to use their therapeutic tools. This course offers a highly practical exploration of how to work with both hemispheres of the brain and other aspects of neural integration to increase clients' capacity for relationship and mindfulness. Through case examples and in-depth discussions of personal experience, it focuses on how to work with here-and-now consciousness, emphasizing the role of internal states, imagery, body awareness, and spontaneous emotion. It also explores what neuroscience can teach us about the narrative and relational dimensions of consciousness and how to alter representations about the past and future from restrictive, cohesive patterns to more flexible and adaptive states of coherent functioning. This course is recommended for clinicians who already have a basic understanding of the principles of interpersonal neurobiology.
Daniel Siegel has been one of the pioneers in incorporating the latest discoveries of brain science into everyday clinical work. He's shown that taking into account what we have learned about the deeply social nature of the brain is no less important than integrating the other systems that clients bring into therapy--family of origin, spouse and children, and cultural, ethnic, and social background. He is an associate clinical professor of psychiatry at UCLA, founding editor of the Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology, and the author of The Developing Mind and Parenting from the Inside Out.
