Concrete Strategies for Your Practice

The language of neurobiology has become part of psychotherapy’s everyday vocabulary. But most therapists still have questions about how to make clinical use of its insights. Join us to learn practical applications from the leading innovators in neuroscience.

Join Rick Hanson, Dan Siegel, Louann Brizendine, Michael Gelb, Norman Doidge, and Stephen Porges.


They'll teach you how to:

  • Read clients’ cues to their underlying neurobiology
  • Assess how a client’s attachment history shapes emotional responses in the present
  • Work effectively with implicit memory to help clients make lasting positive changes
  • Help clients more fully internalize what they learn in therapy
  • Use your knowledge of the brain to regulate your own emotional reactions and deepen your connection with clients.
