BT06 Keynote 01 - Social Connections and Neural Connections: How Promoting Neural Integration Can Make Brief Encounters into Lasting Change - Daniel Siegel, MD
This keynote address will provide an overview of the interdisciplinary view of the mind and mental health. Over 60,000 mental health providers have been asked about their formal education in these areas and less than 5% have had seminars defining these two basic aspects of psychotherapy. This presentation will offer a view based on science of the definition of the mind and well-being and explore ways in which brief therapy can foster rapid and lasting change.
BT06 Keynote 02 - Simplicity and Intensity in Brief Therapy: A Clinical Demonstration - Erving Polster, PhD
Through the special focus which therapy technique induces, therapists often lose touch with the power of such ordinary experiences as humor, friendliness, self-disclosure, approval/disapproval, banter, etc. via a live therapy session, Polster will show how these exchanges may join technique to tighten up the therapy experience and speed up the process.
