The purpose of this training is that the participants establish a foundational under-standing of neuroaffective developmental psychology in psychotherapy, and begin to integrate neuroaffective assessment and treatment strategies in their professions.
Bridging the latest decades of brain research with theories of developmental psychology gives us new insight into personality formation. When massive misattunements occur, the organism becomes vulnerable to stress and posttraumatic disorders. In the psychotherapeutic dialogue it is vital to asses the level of competence in the personality to gear interventions to the proximal zone of development. Using the didactic concept of the triune brain and a theory of adult development of mentalizing skills, the training will offer a map to assess psychobiological developmental resources and weaknesses, and strategies and methods to address them.
