Interpersonal neurobiology - considerations for practice
Interpersonal neurobiology within the psychotherapeutic field provides an interdisciplinary view of the mind/brain and mental well-being.
An introduction to interpersonal neurobiology for practitioners supports the engagement with areas of human development, which enables the understanding of the structure and function of how the mind and brain are shaped by experiences, especially within emotional relationships.
This workshop will draw on several areas within a multidisciplinary frame, for example, effective neuroscience, genetics, implicit/explicit memory, mental well-being, mind, brain and body connections, and how these can inform your practice.
Interpersonal neurobiology can support our understanding of human development, the structure and function of the mind-brain-body, and how they are shaped, especially by those involving emotional experiences.
This one-day workshop offers participants the opportunity to engage with current literature and research from interpersonal neurobiology and to reflect on the implications for therapeutic practice. The workshop will focus on the importance of affect regulation relating to well-being, resilience, and individual reflective capacities. We will also consider, when the effect is dysregulated and dissociated, how this compromises our capacity to think and feel clearly about our own and others' self-states.
We will also reflect on how early developmental experiences can impact the architecture of the brain-mind-body functioning and 'enhance the growth of neurons and the integration of neural networks' (Cozolino, 2016).
