Family Counseling: A Brain-Based Approach
There are 30 openings remaining at this time.
This course focuses on how the brain provides a greater understanding of the self and family relationships. Family dynamics among its members significantly influence our emotional regulation and social behavior because the human brain is considered a social brain shaped by experience. Advances in neuroscience have expanded our understanding of family dynamics through fundamental processes such as attachment and compassion; and the discovery of mirror neurons has greatly expanded how we understand the neural interconnection of human relationships. Learn the basic principles of neuroscience and interpersonal neurobiology, how brain development is shaped by family experiences, how brain architecture and processes offer opportunities to develop and evolve healthy family relationships, and how to coach parents on these brain-based techniques and strategies. Early-bird deadline: Nov. 5. Provides continuing education for counselors, nurses and social workers. Instructor: Brando Tupaz, PCC-S.
