Dr John Arden begins this two-day workshop with an introduction to the core concepts and practices of Brain-Based Therapy. This ground-breaking model synthesises a range of proven therapeutic practices into a cohesive approach underpinned by the most recent neuropsychological understandings of how therapy works.
In the second day of the workshop, Dr Arden will focus these principles on their application in enhancing outcomes with victims of trauma. He will explore a new way of looking at the therapeutic process, enabling you to move beyond the traditional theoretical schools and into a more integrative, neurologically informed approach that incorporates the most effective brain-based approaches of the past century.
Brain-Based Therapy weaves together neuroscience, evidence-based treatment, psychotherapy research, and attachment theory into a powerful hybrid therapeutic model that can explain why it works. It envisions the therapeutic process as a method to change the brain to change mood and behaviour. The role that brain function plays in mood, memory and behaviour will be outlined, including the effect of diet and alcohol on the brain, and mental health over the life span. Special attention will be given to the neurodynamics of PTSD and the crucial role of memory. You will learn how to use Brain-Based Therapy to more effectively educate and treat clients with PTSD.
