How to Help Clients Retrain the Brain for More Happiness
How a brain-savvy approach can lead to more effective trauma interventions
You’ve probably heard of the brain’s negativity bias. But more to the point, you likely see it in action with your clients.
And when clients get stuck on the negative, they can get further bogged down in feelings of inadequacy and self-judgment that are hard to reverse.
To help them shift out of this painful cycle, we first need to understand the specific neurological factors that fuel it.
And we need to know the simple steps we can teach clients to help them turn positive experiences into lasting brain change.
That’s why we’re bringing you this short, focused course . . .
