Neuroplasticity research has shown extraordinary results in treatments for a wide range of nerve-related diseases including M.S., Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s chorea, Chronic Pain, Stroke, Dementia, Cerebral Palsy, Epilepsy, Osteo-arthritis, as well as Psychiatric cases.
Based on Norman Doidge’s two books, The Brain that Can Change Itself, (2007) and The Brain’s Way of Healing, (2015), this presentation will focus primarily on the broad implication of Neuroplasticity for Psychotherapy.
1. Become familiar with Neuroplasticity: What is it? How does it occur? How can it be encouraged?
2. Discover how Neuroplasticity is integral to Psychotherapy
3. Learn how we can promote our own brain plasticity
4. Discuss how this science may shape our future work within the community
