As neuroscience increasingly demonstrates its relevance to clinical practice, it becomes more important for today's therapists to have a clear grasp of how the brain works and of the connection between different brain systems and typical presenting problems like anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsiveness, and couples conflict. In this course, we'll systematically examine the main structures of the brain--the prefrontal cortex, anterior cingulate, temporal lobes, basal ganglia, and the deep limbic structures--and discover how each contributes to our physical and emotional health. You'll learn concrete cognitive, behavioral, nutritional, and medicinal ways of improving the functioning of each of these brain systems and develop an expanded framework for resolving the issues that your clients bring to your office.
