This eight parts seminar examines the use of Brain-Based Therapy to enhance outcomes with people who have been traumatised. It explores a new way of looking at the therapeutic process enabling you to move beyond the traditional theoretical school approach. Brain-Based Therapy synthesizes neuroscience, evidence-based treatment, psychotherapy research, and attachment theory into a hybrid therapeutic model. Brain-Based Therapy envisions the therapeutic process as a method to change the brain in order to change mood and behaviour.
