Generating Ease in Troubled Times: Lessons from Neuroscience

ID: 1012WEB

During this pandemic, all of us are facing challenges and stressors we never imagined we would experience in our lifetime. We need simple, quick “hacks” to regulate our stress response and bring us to a calmer place. This webinar will provide just that: a review of breakthroughs in neuroscience that give us tools to rewire and regulate our body-brain (and those of our clients) for reduced stress, greater well-being and improved relationships. Participants will be given the opportunity to practice empirically validated techniques that activate brain states of calm, relaxation, compassion and gratitude.

At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Differentiate the functions of the brain stem, the limbic system and the neo cortex
  • Explain the difference between the parasympathetic and the sympathetic branches of the autonomic nervous system
  • Describe the stress response and its effects on physical and mental health
  • Define neural plasticity and how it can assist us to regulate our own nervous system and those of our clients
  • Demonstrate a variety of mind-body practices that will assist in regulating the nervous system
