Neuroaffective Developmental Psychology
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.
The first module will focus on the general theory of brain and personality development, and the dynamics of autonomic (sensory), limbic (emotional) and neocortical (thinking) interaction, relationship formation, now-moments and personality development.
The third module will focus on the limbic-emotional and autonomic-autoregulatory levels of contact, interaction and regulation. We will explore the structures of developmental movement and contact interventions as well as train the sense of pacing, flow and now-moments in sessions.
Each training week will offer theory lectures, demonstration therapy, peer therapy training, peer exercises, discussion and supervision to integrate the neuroaffective concepts in the work of the participants. There will be homework assignments between trainings. According to new research data on learning and brain plasticity, participants should schedule at least 1 hour of daily practice for the first two weeks after each training week.
