Should Psychotherapy Be Fun? Let's Talk About Dopamine

There are many goals of psychotherapy including managing difficult feelings, dealing with trauma, and making healthier behavioral choices. This webinar explores mechanisms of healing including utilizing the therapeutic relationship and understanding that what we expose ourselves to (people, the arts, movement) changes our neurotransmitters and therefore how we experience the world. This interactive workshop examines how we can help those we serve, and ourselves, to find areas of control and inspiration to elevate our mood and increase our sense of well-being. Utilizing various videos, this webinar reflects on what neurotransmitters are stimulated when we enjoy music, comedy, and physical movement. Using a strength-based approach, participants are encouraged to incorporate discussion of the arts, comedy, and physical movement into psychotherapy to stabilize and increase mood and foster empowerment among those we treat.

This webinar does not have any offerings for this semester.
