Enhancing Neuroplasticity: Strategies for Rewiring the Brain



The more we apply the discoveries of neuroscience to our clinical work, the more skilled we can become at tailoring interventions to match clients’ specific difficulties and guide them through the changes in brain functioning that best catalyze their growth. Whether clients are stuck in repetitive defensive patterns, struggling to stabilize a coherent sense of self, or progressing slowly toward new resilient behavior, teaching clients specific tools for rewiring the brain can lead to their thriving and flourishing beyond the consulting room. In this workshop, you’ll discover how to:

  • Teach clients tools of self-directed neuroplasticity to reverse the impact of stress and trauma on brain functioning and their capacities to cope
  • Cultivate positive emotions to shift brain functioning from contracted survival responses to larger perspectives and openness to change
  • Use practices of mindfulness and self-compassion to recover the capacities of the prefrontal cortex for response flexibility and resilience
  • Strengthen capacities of empathy and deepen skills of relational intelligence to foster healthy, resonant relationships.
