Behind the scenes - The neuroscience of experiential psychotherapy


Behind the scenes

The neuroscience of experiential psychotherapy

The fact that experiential psychotherapy works, is something we witness everyday with ourclients. But how? And what specifically makes it effective? Which specific pathways areinvolved with emotional processing? What takes place in our bodily system when we focus,for example? What is so “magical” about the experiential encounter?

National and international speakers take us behind the scenes. On this first online editionof our yearly conference they will lean on findings in neuroscientific research and willcombine this with the clinical practice in an effort to try and find some answers to thequestions posed above.
