July 23 and 24, 2021
This intensive lab course will help you link neuroscience to your clinical practice with a focus on evidence based interventions to improve measurable outcomes for adults and children with neurological challenges. It teaches you how to use tools to support the brains ability to rewire itself rather than retraining or relearning a specific skill. This course draws on the expansive brain-behavioral sciences to provide a framework for assessment, priority setting, prognosis and intervention for clients in any treatment setting from those with acute issues such as medically fragile diagnoses, behavioral issues, to those with chronic issues in any treatment setting.
At the conclusion of this course, the participant will be able to:
- Describe the neurobiology of therapeutic relationship and attachment as a healing force in therapy.
- Identify and describe the stress response as an antagonist to healing.
- Analyze the role of arousal as the driving force for attention, learning and rehabilitation.
- Apply a skill set of “tools” for building the brain as an aspect of neuro-rehabilitation.
- Demonstrate a preliminary understanding of the brain/body self-healing mechanisms and the implementation of complementary healing techniques.
Robin Harwell, is a dynamic instructor and clinician who takes complex information and easily applies it clinically. She has extensive experience in a variety of settings, including hospital, clinic, nursing home, home health, private practice and public schools. She spends the majority of her time working “hands-on” at a facility that has incorporated her brain building program. This program, GaitWay to the Brain was part of a published 2+year study by a major university. She limits her private practice, since 2020, to in-person assessments only. She continues consulting with other facilities on their brain building programs.
