    21st Century Tools for the Effective Use of Self in Practice

    Course Description:

    Current research indicates the most important factor in positive clinical outcomes for clients is the characteristics of the clinician themselves, rather than treatment modality used. This course draws upon current research in neuroscience, combined with long-held and relied upon theories, to assist practitioners in developing the characteristics of an effective therapist, to include self-management and self-regulation in practice.

    Upon Completion of this course participants will:

    - Identify the core characteristics of an effective therapist, and engage in self-evaluation
    - Develop a practical understanding of system theory
    - Learn to apply Maslow’s hierarchy of needs in assessing for environmental stressors
    - Gain a practical understanding of attachment theory and how it impacts the social engagement system
    - Review current neuroscience research and its practical application to attunement in the therapeutic relationship to include:
          o The Autonomic Nervous System
         o The Polyvagal Theory
         o Neuroception
    - Develop the assessment skills necessary to identify nervous system states in both themselves and others
    - Develop the skill of active self-awareness as a framework for observing one’s self in practice
    - Understanding of adaptive self-regulation, and the tools to make it applicable to self-regulation in practice
    - Gain in depth insight into how the therapist’s ability to regulate one’s self improves clinical outcomes
