DISTANCE PARTICIPATION AVAILABLE
The vast expansion of knowledge in the neurosciences places a special responsibility on the therapist (and the general public) to maintain an awareness of the individual in relation to others, society and the world. The first session will be a critical review of recent findings in the neurosciences. The following three sessions will each center around a treatment case, and will in the process address a number of key controversies, including the unconscious, child development, trauma and empathy.
At the end of the course:
- Participants will have a fuller grasp of the new research and developments in neurosciences.
- Participants will be able to understand better how deeper knowledge about neuroscience can facilitate their work as psychotherapists.
- Participants will learn from clinical case discussion to be able to have a new perspective on topics such as trauma, the unconscious, empathy and vulnerabilities in child development.
