A brain that changes itself: Implications of neuroplasticity for coaching psychology

Format Seminar/Presentation
Presenters Nicola Gates
Description We can now assume that when therapy or coaching results in experiential change, the brain has, in some way, been altered. This session will provide the latest neuroscience evidence to explore what the implications of such neuroplasticity means for coaches and psychologists.

Whilst there is significant cynicism, some of which is well-founded due to 'abuse' by some practitioners with limited knowledge, there is now substantial scientific evidence in regard to neuropasticity.

Topics include:
1. Introduction to neuroplasticity and brain physiology
2. Implications of neuroplasticity for psychology and coaching practice
3. Optimising the brain health of your clients

Other issues we will consider include:

The importance of informing yourself - research and evidence based practice
Ethics of changing someone's brain & professional standards
Potential new client groups for coaches
Self care - you too can change your brain

So bring along your own questions and prepare for a lively discussion following the presentation!
