Daniel Amen, M.D., is a dear friend and esteemed colleague. He has been a great supporter of the Erickson Foundation and keynote speaker at several conferences. In December, Daniel will once again grace our podium at the upcoming 2017 Evolution of Psychotherapy Conference in Anaheim, California.
Daniel Amen is a psychiatrist and author; his books have been on the New York Times best-seller list. His specialty is brain imaging, and he bases his research on more than 130,000 SPECT scans. In 2015, Discover Magazine touted Daniel’s brain imaging research as one of the top 100 stories of that year. His engaging PBS specials challenge the public to learn about brain health.
As psychotherapy evolves in the 21st century, a predominant theme is affective neurobiology. Clinicians need a guide to the brain. They need to know how it works and how it affects patient behavior as it is the target organ for psychotherapeutic change.
There’s no better teacher to learn about the brain than Daniel Amen. In Dan’s pre-conference workshop, you’ll learn about different brain systems that control adaptation and how unique strategies can be targeted for each pathway. To change life, revitalized brain circuits are required. And, after all, the mind creates the brain.
Join me at Dan’s pre-conference workshop on Tuesday, December 12 in Anaheim. You will be entertained and rewarded. Your dopamine circuits will be stimulated. You will have new tools for helping clients. Reserve your spot for Dan’s pre-conference workshop, “Change Your Brain, Change Your Life: A Therapist’s Guide to the Brain” by clicking here.
