Extraordinary Advances in Neuroplasticity

 In this new workshop, Norman Doidge will explore some extraordinary advances made in the last 2 years in clinical applications of neuroplasticity, and show how to understand new insights on the brain’s circuits and hemispheres can enhance our understanding of, and improve treatment of patients with brain problems, and help deepen our approach to psychotherapy with challenging patients.

Weaving between neuroscience, psychology, psychiatry, neurology, psychotherapy, great literature, and even anthropological findings, this workshop will both update the attendee on the latest neuroplastic developments, reinforce basics, and shed more detailed light on psychotherapy, and the how to help patients who are caught in rigid, unhealthy patterns, grow out of that rigidity, and make use of their neuroplastic potential.

Training Information

Day 1

  • Opening. Why do we have two hemispheres? How they get imbalanced, leaving us devitalized, stuck in a rut, making us more rigid; how the hemispheres malfunction in psychiatric problems; how to reset the balance, enhance productivity, and vitality.
  • An overview of the five stages of neuroplastic healing, and how the apply to psychiatric, psychological and neurological brain problems.
  • Correcting general cellular problems, and reversing Alzheimer’s disease (arguably the most important neurological breakthrough of the last 50 years); the first 200 cases who have reversed their symptoms; preventing Alzheimer’s, even in those with the Alheimer’s gene
  • Parkinson’s, MS, PoNS, stroke update. Breakthrough in TBI treatment in the last two years. Hyperbaric oxygen breakthrough for stroke and TBI. Arrowsmith study. TMS breakthrough.

Day 2

  • The power of directed thought; helping rigid, concrete and egocentric “non-mentalizing” clients access their neuroplastic potential. Understanding the kind of thinking that drives neuroplastic change; the thought spectrum, from directed to undirected thought.
  • Growth attitudes and circuitry, verses anti-growth attitudes and circuitry, in therapy and life: highlighting how these take hold in us, and our clients; anti-growth circuitry and it relation to depression, and “the dormancy tendency;” using the right hemisphere stimulation to access growth attitudes.
  • Listening Therapy Update, more autism breakthroughs; TBI update with complex cases; neuroplastic approaches to multiple chemical sensitivities and fibromyalgia.
  • Review, Q & A.

These workshops are suitable for (but not limited to) mental health professionals, including psychologists, psychiatrists, therapists, counsellors, social workers, neuropsychologists, chiropractors, osteopaths, psychometrists, recreational therapists, occupational and physio-therapists and naturopaths.

There are no prerequisites to attending this workshop. Anyone interested in the workshop content is welcome to attend, however you do so under your own volition.

These workshops are aimed to bring you up to date with the very latest research and clinical implications from the field of neuroplasticity.
