But how much of this knowledge do we bring to the self-care of our own brains to manage the emotion of working with challenging clients, reduce stress and burn-out, increase our adaptability, restore our sense of perspective, and recover our intuitive creativity? In this experiential workshop, we’ll learn to harness the brain’s neuroplasticity to enhance the quality of our own lives. We’ll practice 10 simple, empirically-validated techniques that regulate our body-brains, enhance coping strategies, and restore our capacities for social connectivity. We’ll then explicitly integrate the rewiring that we’ve just accomplished. By the end of the day, you’ll have mastered techniques that create a new neural integration to promote flexibility, recover a sense of balance and wholeness, and restore your capacity for open-ended creativity.
