The Interpersonal Neurobiology of Clinical Change: From Clinical Relationship to Personal Capacity, Kaiser Permanente, Saturday, 02. November 2019

The Interpersonal Neurobiology of Clinical Change: From Clinical Relationship to Personal Capacity
Presenter: Dr. Michael Changaris
This interactive presentation will explore the neurobiology of clinical change, interpersonal relationships, and co-regulation as the anchor for developing clinical change. Clinicians will develop practical tools for assessing areas of patient emotion and social regulation system development, learning to speak the language of the brain systems that drive relationship, and developing clinical tools to grow the innate capacities of relational brain systems. Clinicians attending this training will develop basic tools for patient neuroscience education.  
Students will develop tools create address implicit bias in the clinical dyad, reduce the impact of implicit bias in the clinical dyad and, and support co-regulation. Clinicians in this workshop will understand poly-vagal theory, neuroception and ways to develop innate capacity for relational safety through a cultural humility and cultural responsive framework.   
Participants will develop skills in assessment, treatment and use of biopsychosocial strategies to support symptom reduction and increased regulatory capacity. Participants will develop evidence- based clinical tools for clinical change grounded in affective neuroscience for multiple mental health conditions. This training will explore somatic/body-based clinical tools as well as ACT, DBT and CBT tools to increase acceptance and healthy relational growth.
Course Objectives:

Participants will understand a four-part assessment strategy of interpersonal neurobiological (i.e. social & emotional regulation) system development and core clinical intervention strategies that promote enhanced functioning of these systems.
Participants will recognize three components of poly-vagal theory and how they relate to state based cognitive and affective functioning.
Participants will develop clinical co-regulation skills that support enhanced appropriate neuroception (e.g., subcortical threat assessment), increased resilience and biopsychosocial interventions to support reduction in toxic stress
Participants will develop three skills to address implicit bias in clinical interactions and support culturally responsive co-regulation. 
Participants will understand three forms of emotion regulation (self-regulation, cognitive regulation, co-regulation).
Participants will understand clinically effective use of emotion regulation neuroscience education (ER-NE). ER-NE strategies promote self-regulation capacity, capacity to engage self-guided neuroplasticity and strategies that support social-emotional growth.
