She will focus her discussion on the dimension of radical hope. After highlighting research findings, she will describe current interventions that promote specific aspects of radical healing. Specific practice recommendations will be offered.

We are on the cusp of a new revolution that will change mental health care forever. The End of Mental Illness discards an outdated, stigmatizing paradigm and replaces it with a modern brain-based, whole-person program rooted in science and hope. No one is shamed for cancer or diabetes; likewise, no one should be shamed for depression and other brain health/mental health issues. Based on the world's largest functional brain imaging database, Dr. Amen will give you a completely new way to think about and treat issues such as anxiety, depression, bipolar disorders, ADHD, addictions, OCD, PTSD, schizophrenia and even personality disorders.
"In the United States, the omnipresence of racial bias and bigotry has led many to question the reasons for their persistence in light of widespread public condemnation. Social scientists have proposed a number of reasons for people’s failure to act: (a) the invisibility of modern forms of bias, (b) trivializing an incident as innocuous, (c) diffusion of responsibility, (d) fear of repercussions or retaliation, and (e) the paralysis of not knowing what to do. This presentation is aimed at addressing the last reason by providing participants with a repertoire of anti-bias strategies and tactics to overcome the expressions of microaggressions.
Is technology changing love? Why do you fall in love with one person rather than another? Why is the rejected brain primed for psychotherapy? How can you use neuroscience to keep love alive? And where are we headed in our digital age? Anthropologist and neuroscientist Dr. Helen Fisher uses her brain scanning work (fMRI) to discuss three basic brain systems that evolved for mating and reproduction--the sex drive, romantic love, and attachment; each plays a pivotal role in human health and happiness. And she uses her data on 50,000 single Americans to explain a new (and positive) trend in courtship, what she calls “slow love.” She then discusses her data on the biological foundations of human personality—specifically four basic styles of thinking and behaving that impact love relationships and all other social interactions.
Our beliefs exert a very powerful force on our behavior. Our beliefs about ourselves and what is possible in the world around us greatly impact our capacity for change and healing. Limiting beliefs, or belief barriers, can act like an invisible force that interfere with our capacity to be resourceful and trap us in unhealthy patterns of behavior. Empowering beliefs help us to identify and take best advantage of potential opportunities. This demonstration will show how to identify and transform belief barriers by integrating somatic and emotional intelligence to create an empowering "belief bridge."
