How Neuroscience Informs Treatment

Code S06 :: Seminar Session :: 1.50 CE hours

Session Description

There is an explosion of neuroscience research which is providing new insights into brain functioning in health and illness. This research is challenging traditional perspectives on diagnosis and approaches in treatment. This presentation is an evolving effort to organize and integrate what we are learning about the brain into a coherent model for understanding and working effectively with the difficulties of those who seek our professional assistance. Both those in training and master clinicians will find something new and of value in this presentation.

Learning Objectives
