The Whole Brain Approach for Clinicians
Session 1 • 10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
With an emphasis on the latest scientific research, Dr. Bryson explores neuroplasticity and the changing brain using stories, case examples, videos and humor. Hear creative examples of how she applies brain science in her own practice and gain a new framework for understanding your clients and work as a clinician. Learn several specific Whole-Brain strategies that can help young people move from reactivity to resilience and inspire lasting change.

No Drama Discipline and Shifting Our Lens Beyond Behavior
Session 2 • 12:15 p.m. - 1:45 p.m.
Dr. Bryson highlights the fascinating link between a child’s neurobiological development and the way parents react to misbehavior. Explore strategies to connect with children, redirect emotions and create teachable moments that stop the cycle of negative behavior. Learn how to work with a child’s developing mind, peacefully resolve conflict and inspire happiness and strength for the whole family.

Adult Attachment: My Story, My Brain, My Relationships
Session 3 •  2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
We each have mental models of how relationships are supposed to work. Based on past relationships, these models determine how we function in current relationships with our significant others, family, friends, children and clients. Explore what adult attachment is, what it has to do with our relationships, and the way we tell our story. Look at how attachment experiences impact the way our brains work and gain insight into who we are, how our relationships work, and how to change from the inside out.
