The end of mental illness will begin with a revolution in brain health. Unfortunately, most psychotherapists get limited information on how the brain works, even though it is the organ of loving, learning, behavior, and every decision made. Understanding the brain is critical to mental health clinical practice.
In this preconference workshop Daniel Amen will give therapists a working knowledge of brain function and tools to optimize it, including how to coach their clients to better brain health.
