Neuroanatomy Made Simple Part II (Self-Study)



Join us for this course series on Neuroanatomy Made Simple. With research showing the changes that take place in the brain during and after therapy, a basic understanding of neuroanatomy by all of us, clinicians, is rather essential.

We know that CBT leads to greater brain activations in several regions of the frontal lobe, and that it leads to increased connectivity between the amygdala and frontal regions. We also know there are changes in the precentral gyrus, the precuneus, and the insula. But all this means nothing unless we can really make sense of it.

The goal of Neuroanatomy Made Simple is to do just that - to help all of us, clinicians, be fully informed whether we are talking about brain changes made possible by either CBT or by any other form of therapy.

Come and learn the basics, the fundamentals, the nuts and bolts, and the secrets of Neuroanatomy. Whether you are a social worker; or a physician; whether you are a nurse practitioner or a therapist; whether you are a psychologist, or a nurse, or a health coach: This lecture series is tailored just for you!

Note this is a series but we will work on having each part stand alone to make sure everyone can attend any time.
