Who: Medical professionals of all sorts!
When: November 19-20, 2018
Where: Best Western PLUS in Stratford, Ontario, Canada
This workshop, based on the best-selling books The Brain that Changes Itself and The Brain’s Way of Healing, draws on revolutionary research and extraordinary advances in the field of neuroscience to illuminate the amazing extent to which the brain is able to change and heal. Dr. Doidge weaves together scientific research, case histories, his own insights, and original films of real people undergoing neuroplastic change, to explain how we can apply these findings in clinical practice – and to help clients/patients with a range of emotional, psychological, psychiatric and brain disorders to achieve a level of recovery that was once thought impossible.
Dr. Norman Doidge, MD will discuss neuroplastic approaches and new treatments for a range of conditions, including ADD, learning disorders, autism, sensory processing disorders, PTSD, depression, schizophrenia, chronic pain, traumatic brain injury, stroke, MS, Parkinson’s disease and dystonias, among others. He will also explore how to reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, and will present findings about a monumental breakthrough in the treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease which shows, for the first time, that it is possible (in a number of cases) to reverse the symptoms.
This innovative workshop will inspire and offer hope about the possibility of overcoming previously baffling mental and physical conditions. Even better than that, it will explain how to use the principles of neuroplasticity to improve (in many cases) – and in some cases even cure – these conditions, so that we can better help our patients/clients, our loved ones and ourselves.
- How neuroplasticity informs our understanding of what goes wrong in a range of mental health problems, brain damage, disease, and disorder
- The five stages of neuroplastic healing and how to determine which stage needs clinical attention in clients
- The “Plastic Paradox”: how certain conditions such as addiction, bad habits, defense mechanisms, chronic pain, dystonias, PTSD and OCD, are caused by the brain’s plasticity going awry, and clinical strategies to remedy this
- New non-invasive treatments for a range of disorders
- How mental experience, activity, and sensory stimulation can alter or develop brain structure and function
- Recent advances in the neuroscience and neuroplasticity of left/right hemisphere differences and how to integrate these insights to improve psychotherapy
- How neuroplastic approaches can help clients who are rigid, concrete, or lacking self-reflective capacity
- How to preserve brain plasticity”
How: $336.85 USD, which is FANTASTIC for (likely) 15 hours, BUT it’s not approved for CCU credit in any US medical profession, so you’ll have to apply for that and pay the fees yourself. Because of that (and a nice group discount that is also available) you might think about getting a group from your profession/licensing agency together to go, so you can all share the credit fee!

In case you’re needing a little encouragement to jump over to Canada….
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”– Mark Twain, The Innocents Abroad/ Roughing It
A new favorite quote of mine. 🙂
