MDFT 6649: The Brain-Savvy Therapist
This seminar reviews basic brain structure and the flow of energy and information in the embodied and relational brain, particularly as they relate to the processes of attachment and psychotherapy. Learn about brain development in the first two years of life, including implicit, explicit, and autobiographical memory, the shaping the nervous system, and the role of mirror neurons and resonance circuits in the development of brain structure and function. Develop an understanding of the neural correlates of the four attachment styles, with particular emphasis on becoming aware of ones own style and how it may influence the conduct of therapy. This course will emphasize whole-brain learning: both through understanding concepts and having experiences.
