Description: In this lecture we will explore the consilient findings of interpersonal neurobiology (IPNB) and how current empirical research can be synthesized in understanding the impact of trauma on the mind, the embodied brain, and relationships and how psychotherapy can harness these insights to enhance psychotherapeutic interventions. Recent findings in the field of neuroscience can be combined with our understanding of consciousness, cognition, and culture to see how the lack of belonging in various forms of developmental trauma—from abuse to neglect—involve the isolation of the individual from a sense of connection with others. The lack of trust in such a relational field of disconnection can be exacerbated by what researchers call a violation of “epistemic trust,” the ways we turn to our attachment figures to rely on the nature of what is real and true. The research on the impacts of such developmental assaults on secure attachment reveal impediments to the growth of the brain’s interconnectedness—as see in effects on the hippocampus, the corpus callosum, the prefrontal cortex, and the connectome. Each of these integrative neural systems, while impaired in trauma, can also be healed and stimulated to grow with interventions such as mind training that involves the focus of attention, the opening of awareness, and the cultivation of compassion and kindness. The lecture will explore each of these aspects of relational and neural integration at the heart of healing.

Why is it important that all participants read and carefully follow the Q&A? It is important that each participant reads the Q&A so they fully understand the expectations and all information necessary to successfully participate in CBI trainings. The mission of CBI Center for Education is to enhance the quality of mental health services and support the long-term development of mental health professionals through free and low cost trainings. The reason we are able to offer trainings at this price point is because we rely on technology to streamline the registration, dissemination of webinar links/passwords, course evaluation surveys, and CE certificates. Technology allows us to not carry the heavy costs associated with employing a large staff to manually complete those tasks for thousands of participants. We created the Q&A so that participants have all information needed to successfully participate in a CBI training.

If you are licensed in a state other than Pennsylvania, you must personally check with your state specific board or association to see if they will accept CE's issued by the American Psychological Association.

This is an APA requirement and non-negotiable.
