Neuroscience for Mental Health Providers Part One

User Avatar


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.


  • Communicate how an understanding of neuroscientific research and neurological processes can help mental health professionals improve clinical outcomes.
  • Employ psychoeducation techniques that improve engagement in therapy by making neuroscience and neurobiology understandable for clients.
  • Analyze how neural pathways regulating stress and reward are related to mental health disorders, and connect this information to your utilization of therapeutic interventions to reduce stress and manage addiction.
  • Investigate how mindfulness and meditation impact the nervous system and articulate how mindfulness interventions can be used in your treatment plans for depression.
