 Roadmap to Neuroscience-informed Mental Health Practice

Overview

Course Overview 


This 6-hour core clinical program will provide important
information in a systematic, readily understandable
and easily digestible way about how to integrate
emerging neuroscience into your clinical practice
in a clinically appropriate and ethically compliant manner.

We will uncover and explore the foundational knowledge base
of emerging affective neuroscience that is fundamentally
reshaping the field of mental health practice and changing
what is considered best practices in the 21st Century.

This new information will not overwrite or negate
the approaches and techniques you are already using
effectively in your clinical work, but will rather expand
and enhance your effectiveness with a deeper understanding
about what works and why it works – while also providing
new options based upon better science.

This is the second program of a series of programs
designed to help Master’s level clinicians advance
their knowledge base in the integration of neuroscience
into their practice.

This program will provide extensive handouts to support
the acquisition of knowledge in this area.

Upon completing our workshop, you will be able to:

1. Describe some of the most important foundational
knowledge from emerging neuroscience that is relevant
for clinical practice but largely unexplored by most
Master’s level clinicians.
2. Identify the areas of neuroscience that are
most relevant to the work that you do and the population(s)
that you work with.
3. Incorporate the key vocabulary of affective neuroscience
into your clinical knowledge base.
4. Apply your knowledge of neuroscience and other emerging
clinical knowledge to extending your skills in a clinically
appropriate and ethically compliant manner.
5. Utilize emerging knowledge to provide more precise,
concise and effective psychoeducation to clients as
an adjunct to direct client-clinician interaction.
6. Integrate knowledge from neuroscience into current
approaches and techniques such as CBT, DBT, EFT, systems
and psychodynamic approaches in order to extend
their effectiveness.
7. Apply 21st Century case conceptualization
incorporating neuroscience
