Clinical Applications of Neuroplasticity
Leading Edge Seminars presents a two day workshop The Brain’s Way of Healing: Clinical Applications of Neuroplasticity by Norman Doidge, MD, in Toronto
Dr. Doidge will introduce the latest ideas about what goes wrong in a range of emotional, psychological, psychiatric and brain disorders and the five stages of neuroplastic healing, and how to determine which stage needs clinical attention in your patient. He will discuss neuroplastic approaches to a range of conditions including ADD, learning disorders, Autism, sensory processing disorders, PTSD, depression, chronic pain, traumatic brain injury, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, MS, and lowering the risk of dementia.
Using film clips he will explain, in depth, how people who were told they would never get better, have restored lost functions or developed new ones they never had. We will learn how mental experience, activity and sensory stimulation of the senses can alter the plastic brain. This workshop will cover basic neuroscience and detailed case histories, and will open you and your clients to improvements that used to be thought impossible.
