The Brain Fix: Using Science as a Metaphor for Recovery

Credits: 1.5 CE Distance Learning

Brain imaging has helped to make neuroscience more available to a wider population. Science can construct a complete neural map that tells us about the underlying cause, uncovers biomarkers that predict the occurrence, and identify indicators of recovery and warn of ensuing relapse. With your “fixed” brain you can improve your quality of life by thinking more clearly, enjoying a sharper memory, feeling happier and less stressed, and being in control of your habits. These improvements can occur quickly— and they can be long lasting.

Capturing Mindfulness: Mindfulness is in fashion, but how does it work? The elucidation of the mechanism of action from a conceptual and neural prospective

Credits: 1.5 CE Distance Learning

Through mindfulness a person becomes aware in a nonjudgmental way of how they are feeling moment to moment. The process of mindfulness meditation produces beneficial effects on attention and emotional regulation as well as changes in self-awareness. For those struggling with addictions, trauma, eating disorders, pain, social anxiety etc. this powerful technique produces beneficial effects on well-being, recovery, and pain reduction. There are very few reviews that integrate the existing literature into a comprehensive framework of how mindfulness works. This presentation incorporates research from functional and structural neuroimaging to explain the neuroscientific process underlying the success of mindfulness in psychotherapeutic interventions.
