DESCRIPTION:

This training will introduce the participants to the Functional Psycho-Neuro-Biology Lens that can be utilized in mental health and other mind-mending practices, when dealing with Parenting, Parenthood, Childhood and Selfhood.

During this training, the participants will become acquainted with or expand their knowledge about the main Brain-Mind processes – neuroplasticity, neurogenesis, neurointegration, synaptic connections & synaptic pruning, neuronetworking/ connectomes, mirror neuron networking, electrochemical conduction of information, as well as the main Brain-Mind phenomena – of brain laterality, “don’t use it – lose it,” “what fires together – wires together,” “regions connected together – grow up together,” and others. We will discuss the Brain-Mind dyad, using Paul MacLean’s Triune Brain theoretical framework, and attachment, stress responses, self-regulation, and epigenetics as these apply to understanding and treating trauma, mental health disorders, as well as various conditions involving the internal organs and systems.

We will look at all these as the functional system (rather than offering the neuroanatomical models), allowing one to explain the “Whys” of our behaviors, predispositions to trauma and various mental and body/organs’ disorders, and what to do with these practically.

We also will look into the topics of Neurodiversity, and how the parents and children, as well as the rest of the family and the society are affected by misunderstanding of Neurodiversity, and how the Functional PsychoNeuroBiology approach can be of help.

Case examples will be offered. Participants’ case examples or/and life situations will also be discussed.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

At the end of this educational activity, its participants will be able to:

  • Discuss and analyze the main processes within the Functional Psychoneurobiology Lens: neurogenesis; neuroplasticity; neurointegration; neurocircuitry; connectomes; electrochemical conduction (and brain as an electro-chemical machine).
  • Discuss and analyze the main phenomena within the Functional Psychoneurobiology Lens: “fire together — wire together”; “born together — wire together”; Triune Brain framework of Paul McLean; the top-down modulation and the bottom-up processing.
  • Utilize the concepts of the Functional Psychoneurobiology Lens in mental health, trauma-sensitive clinical practice, and when working with individuals and families.
  • Utilize the concepts of the Functional Psychoneurobiology Lens in one’s life.
