Course description and syllabus

Most counsellors, psychotherapists and complementary therapists have not had an opportunity to study neuroscience, the science of how the brain works. More and more research is showing that neuroscience can inform the ways we understand learning, memory, emotion, behaviour and various dysfunctions and mental health problems. In turn, this has implications for counselling and other mental health and emotional well-being interventions.

The set text presents an accessible overview of recent trends in research and how what scientists know suggests guidelines for therapy and health. A glossary is provided for those unfamiliar with scientific terms. You will learn about the relevance of neuroscience for the following conditions:

PTSD and Dissociation,
Depression and Bipolar,
Anxiety,
ADHD,
Autism Spectrum Disorders (including Asperger's),
OCD,
Personality Disorders,
P
sychosis and Schizophrenia,
Eating Disorders
 

Links to authoritative neuroscience news sites are given to enable you to keep up with reports of the latest advances in the field, so your knowledge will not go out of date.

We will check periodically to see if a new edition of the core textbook is available and if so the course will be revised.

 

Entry Criteria:  Open entry.

Suitability:
