The Clinical Applications Of Interpersonal Neurobiology

media-audiocourse-tn With Daniel Siegel • 6 Sessions • 6 Optional CE Hours

brain scienceRevolutionary discoveries about the social nature of the brain are being made daily. One primary concept that makes brain science highly accessible and applicable in the consulting room is a concept introduced by Daniel Siegel, M.D. It's called "interpersonal neurobiology" and refers to the neural processes connecting one brain to another.

In this 6 session course you'll explore the nuances of interpersonal neurobiology, its implications for the therapist-client relationship, and how to apply it in your clinical work.

What's Covered In A101 The Clinical Applications of Interpersonal Neurobiology:

  • What therapists can do to use neurological findings to transform the client emotionally.
    The major components of the human brain and their related functions, and how to use the "palm-of- your-hand" approach.

  • Daniel Siegel's demonstration that understanding the deeply social nature of the brain is no less important than integrating the other "systems" in your clients lives—family of origin, spouse and children, and cultural, ethnic, and social background.
