General Course Description
It was originally assumed that the brain reached its full potential by early middle age and that everything from then on involved decline. We now know that the brain continues to develop new neurons, synapses and dendrites and to forge new pathways at least into our sixties. Neuroplasticity has become one of the key words in understanding brain development. Therapies such as neurofeedback, CBT and even relational therapies help rewire and grow the brain.
This 4 CE advanced course in neuroplasticity and brain repair offers detailed explanations of the definitions and mechanisms of neuroplasticity, with a special focus on how neurofeedback and CBT work on conditions such as traumatic brain injury and cognitive rehabilitation in the elderly. It includes a list of resources for further study, organizations that utilize neurofeedback technology, and directories of certified practitioners.
This course will teach psychotherapists to:
1. Discuss how traumatic brain injury affects the brain and how to treat it
2. Discuss the mechanisms and biology of neuroplasticity.
3. Discuss various forms of neurofeedback and how they promote neuroplasticity.
4. Discuss the connection between neuroplasticity and cognitive rehabilitation.
