Why Therapy Works
Psychotherapy works - this is a basic assumption of our profession. But why does it work and why does it matter that we understand how it works? Regardless of your psychotherapeutic methods, all positive change comes down to the brain and how it evolved into a social organ - especially how brains evolved to learn, unlearn, and relearn. All this learning and re-learning is the target of our interventions and the basis of lasting psychological change. In this presentation, Lou Cozolino will explore these underlying mechanisms of action of psychotherapeutic change.
Participants will learn how the brain evolved and develop into a social organ
Participants will learn how the brain learns and relearns in the process of psychotherapy
Participants will learn how stress and trauma impact our abilities to connect with others and risk our disconnection from attunement, compassion, and empathy.
For the first time in the United States, Creating Connections 2016 brought together the world's most-renowned and followed neuroscience and psychotherapy experts as they focused on the continuing impact of cutting-edge science. All previous Creating Connections conferences have been held in Efteling, the Netherlands, since their inception in 2011.
The practice of psychotherapy is undergoing a revolution because of the latest research showing the ways people are wired for relationships and how they can employ innate tools for managing those relationships. The researchers and scientists at Creating Connections 2016 helped attendees and viewers develop their own framework and techniques for applying this science in their work with adults, couples, children, and families.
