Neuroscience for Mental Health Providers Part One
See your treatment interventions through a whole new lens. The field of neuroscience has been turned upside down over the last 20 years. What we used to think was fixed and hard-wired, we now know that the adult brain is constantly changing based on how we use it. This means that the mental health interventions you’ve been using your whole career are actually leading to lasting brain changes. Dr. Sherrie All, a trained neuropsychologist who has built her career on providing neuroplastic interventions to adults, will guide you through what’s going on in the brain during therapy. Her fun and engaging presentation style make learning technical neuroscience fun.
