Objectives
  1. Communicate how an understanding of neuroscientific research and neurological processes can help mental health professionals improve clinical outcomes.
  2. Establish the interrelationship of depression and anxiety and communicate how this information can be used in relation to treatment planning.
  3. Employ psychoeducation techniques that improve engagement in therapy by making neuroscience and neurobiology understandable for clients.
  4. Analyze how neural pathways regulating stress and reward are related to mental health disorders, and connect this information to your utilization of therapeutic interventions to reduce stress and manage addiction.
  5. Evaluate the relationship between memory malleability and trauma and communicate how this information can be utilized therapeutically to help clients cope with traumatic memories.
  6. Investigate how mindfulness and meditation impact the nervous system and articulate how mindfulness interventions can be used in your treatment plans for depression.
