Overview: Over the past couple of decades there has been an exciting merging of

psychotherapy and neuroscience research that is revolutionizing clinical practice. Cognitive,

affective, social, and positive neuroscience research provides profound insight into the brain

changes we are capable of producing.

We are beginning to learn, through this research, how to enact these changes through the

practice of psychotherapeutic techniques that target and improve the functioning of specific

brain structures.

This webinar, led by clinical expert Dr. Jennifer Sweeton, shares the most up-to-date research

discoveries and teaches highly effective psychotherapy techniques clinicians can begin using


Why should you Attend: Neuroscience research is providing insight into why, when, and with whom

specific psychotherapeutic approaches may be beneficial to therapy clients. However,

translating neuroscience research into clinical practice can be a daunting task, and very few

licensed mental health professionals have specialized training in both neuroscience and

psychotherapy. This webinar, presented by a clinician with a neuroscience background, bridges

neuroscience research and clinical practice in a straightforward, digestible manner.

Attendees of this webinar will gain knowledge about the key brain areas involved in mental

health and illness, and will be provided with examples of psychotherapeutic techniques that

have been shown to alter those areas of the brain in the direction of health! For example, this

webinar will include a discussion of the techniques that have been shown to alter the fear,

memory and self-regulation centers of the brain. Scripts and instructions will be provided for

the methods discussed, so that attendees can begin using these techniques immediately.
