Dr. Schreiber-Pan integrates brain-based strategies for calming the anxious mind with client communication techniques that motivate change in your clients. Heidi’s approach promotes adherence to treatment and strengthens the therapeutic alliance - which is essential when working with anxious, worried, traumatized, or obsessive clients. Dr. Schreiber-Pan will give you tools and techniques to: • Identify and treat the roots of anxiety in both the amygdala and the cortex • Explain “the language of the amygdala” in an accessible, straight forward way • Identify how the cortex contributes to anxiety, and empower clients with strategies to resist anxiety-igniting cognitions Course Objectives: • Ascertain the underlying neurological processes that impact anxious symptoms for clients. • Develop client engagement in treatment using personalized goals and attending to the therapeutic relationship. • Evaluate the differences between amygdala-based and cortex-based anxiety symptoms and identify how these symptoms inform treatment interventions. • Communicate strategies for calming and training the amygdala in order to alleviate symptoms of anxiety. • Implement methods for teaching clients to retrain the cortex so that anxiety is resisted rather than exacerbated. • Analyze how psychotropic medication impacts neuroplasticity in the brain; identify related treatment implications.
