In the last two decades, research outcomes on the neuroscience of human relationship has challenged therapeutic models that advocate the qualities of individualism and self-sufficiency actually may be harmful to one’s health. This is great news for any therapist who believes the greatest asset in helping people heal is the capacity to form a healthy therapeutic relationship. 

This webinar will introduce attendees to the latest research in Relational Neuroscience with a specific goal of helping therapists harness the power of connection in their clinical work.
