There is a vast wisdom describing the capacity for self-transformation and healing central to Buddhist psychology, now a focus of current neuroscience research as well. We will delineate the principles and clinical/therapeutic applications of mindfulness, compassion and forgiveness trainings, attunement, mental health and well being, as well as the profound shift of identity that has parallels in eastern psychology and recent neuroscience research. We will explore the wedding of a spiritual psychology of the heart in tune with clinically sound modern science.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe the clinical application of five principles of Buddhist psychology.
  2. To describe how to apply three findings of modern neuroscience in formulating treatment of children and adults.
