  2. Advanced Psychological Anatomy: Developmental Neuromuscular Affective Integration


Psychological Anatomy: Developmental Neuromuscular Affective Integration

This seminar integrates the work of Allan Schore, Daniel Siegel, Bruce Perry, Joseph Ledoux, Jim Grigsby, Richard Davidson, and other developmental neuroscientists with clinical and practical applications for professionals.

Therapeutic progress may be slowed or stalled as a result of unresolved developmental challenges that are often misinterpreted as resistance, attention seeking and help-rejecting behavior, interpersonal conflict, malingering, or character disorders. These misinterpretations lead to frustration, re-wounding of the client, and ultimately premature termination.

In this exciting five-day course we will explore stages of development starting in utero and extending to the teen years. The concomitant conflicts that may arise within the therapy as a result of derailments at any given stage will be discussed. The psychological function of the neuromusculature initiated within each stage will be explicated. In addition, utilizing the most recent psychophysiological research on attachment, the cognitive and emotional aspects of stage-specific brain development will be explored. Affective development and its centrality in the capacity to self regulate will be discussed.

Strategies for helping clients work through developmental derailments will be presented through experiential and didactic modalities allowing individuals to integrate what they have learned directly into their work on Monday morning.
