WSPP: Minding the Body, Mending the Mind

Friday, January 11, 2013,   12:30pm – 3:30pm
Presenter: Stephen Stein, PhD

This seminar will describe how the convergence of psychodynamic theory, mind-body principles and neuroscience enhance the therapeutic encounter. Through didactic and experiential components, we’ll explore the important role neural integration has in therapy and psychological well-being. Topics include: 1) reviewing the neocortical and limbic system, brain stem and left brain-right brain functioning, 2) how neural development is sculpted through interpersonal relationships, 3) the effects of stress in relation to neural functioning, behavior and psychological well-being, 4) the impact of therapy upon neural integration, limbic revision and executive functioning to promote neural plasticity and healing, 5) how neuroscience integrates with central concepts from object relations theory, self-psychology and intersubjectivity.

Registration: free to members, $40 for non-members.
CE’s: this seminar earns 3 CE’s for an additional cost of $10 (for members and non-members).
