Psychotherapy From The Inside Out: The Brain Of The Mindful Therapist

media-audiocourse-tn With Daniel Siegel • 12 Sessions • 12 Optional CE Hours

mind-body-a307-mindful-therapistDiscover how ancient meditation traditions and the latest brain research meet to yield a new understanding of the connection between neural integration, mindfulness, and therapeutic effectiveness.

As we learn more about the social nature of the brain, we discover what traditional notions of "mindfulness" mean in the context of human relationships. It is becoming ever clearer that it is the clinician's own level of neural integration that is at the heart of the therapeutic process. With Dan Seigel, this course will focus on how neuroscience can complement traditional contemplative practices and discuss how this is important in the consulting room.

What's Covered in A307 Psychotherapy from the Inside Out:

  • The nine levels of neural integration and how to work at each level, both for yourself and with your clients.
  • Recent findings about the mirror neuron system and how the circuits involved in emotional resonance and empathy can enhance your understanding of others and of your self.
  • The role of "mindsight" -the interweaving of insight and empathy-and how it can improve your cleint's emotional self-regulation, communication, and mental well-being.
  • Why it is important to establish integration within your own life so that you can create the interpersonal foundation for healing in others.
