The neuroscience of psychotherapy : The Healthy Aging Brain

Dr Louis Cozolino

This eight parts seminar explores psychotherapy and the social brain with a special emphasis on the causes and consequences of trauma. As a foundation, the evolution, development, and neuroanatomy of the brain with the goal of highlighting its vulnerability to dysregulation and dissociation are discussed. In it we recognise and better understand the neural networks responsible for stress and trauma and the challenge of keeping the government of systems which comprise our brains integrated and functioning smoothly. Then how psychotherapy, in its multiple forms, attempts to reshape the brain in the service of mental health is discussed. And finally,the process of healthy aging, especially for therapists who are confronted with trauma on a day-to-day basis is explored.

Seminar organised by the NSW Service for the Treatment and Rehabilitation of Torture and Trauma Survivors (STARTTS) 
Recorded 26-27 May 2011, New South Wales, Australia.
