Few people want to see a psychiatrist or mental health professional or be labeled as defective or abnormal, but everyone wants a better brain. What if mental health was really brain health? That is what Dr. Amen’s 40 years as a psychiatrist have taught him. In this workshop, he will share the tools you need to become more aware of brain health and expand your practice. You will learn about different brain systems, what they do, what happens when things go wrong, and how to help clients in this area of care.
• Identify the three ways people can change or modify behavior with the help of a mental health professional or psychologist
• Outline the three brain systems of change
• Demonstrate five tools to help people change in their work with clients
