During the Decade of the Brain, fMRI and SPECT scans provided new insights. But after the dust settled, it was not clear how therapists could use this information in the service of mental health. Combining Ericksonian paradigms with the latest science of brain dynamics, this workshop will lay out a step by step methodology that can be easily followed and implemented to improve and optimize your clients’ emotional and cognitive functioning.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To identify three pathways to increase brain plasticity and mental health.
  2. To list three reasons patients might not respond to medications.
