Join Dr. Heidi Schreiber-Pan and learn the keys to successful anxiety treatment. 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 treatment adherence and strengthens the therapeutic alliance – which is essential when working with anxious, worried, traumatized, or obsessive clients.
This workshop, we will explore the fascinating concept of neuroplasticity and its practical applications in therapy. We will break down complex neuroscience into everyday language, helping clients grasp the transformative power of creating a new self through the accessible concept of “rewiring.”
Throughout the day, participants will delve into the process of re-consolidation, demystifying the modification of emotional memories. Participants will gain insights into identifying two neural pathways to anxiety and understanding the interplay between the amygdala and the cortex.
The approach focuses on client-friendly explanations, employing illustrations to concretely explain the fight/flight/freeze responses and decoding the “language of the amygdala.” Furthermore, we will unravel how anxiety manifests in the cortex, offering participants the tools to recognize and navigate both pathways to anxiety.
The workshop will shed light on the potency of relaxation, meditation, and breathing in modifying amygdala responses, equipping your clients with tangible strategies to integrate into the therapeutic practice. Participants will also gain an understanding on exposure as unique opportunities for the amygdala to learn, and learn effective methods to combat avoidance.
This workshop is designed to empower therapists with the knowledge and skills to elucidate these intricate concepts to clients, fostering a deeper understanding of the neural mechanisms at play in anxiety and paving the way for transformative therapeutic interventions.
