In this day long workshop, world renowned interdisciplinary scholar and neuropsychoanalyst Dr. Allan Schore will discuss the change mechanism of psychotherapy from the perspective of Regulation Theory, a model of the development, psychopathogenesis, and treatment of the implicit self. He will offer two lectures which draw upon his recently published volume, The Science of the Art of Psychotherapy, which includes his latest models of attachment, neuropsychoanalysis, traumatology, and affective neuroscience.

His morning lecture will be: “Working in the right brain: a regulation model of clinical expertise for treatment of attachment trauma.” His afternoon lecture will be: “A paradigm shift in the therapeutic approach to clinical enactments.”

Over the course of the day, he will offer a number of Power Point presentations coupled with audience dialogues to demonstrate that changes in the connectivity of the right brain are an outcome of effective treatment, and that the incorporation of current scientific studies of the right brain into updated clinical models allows for a deeper understanding of not only why, and but also how affectively focused psychotherapy works.   His talk will emphasize how effective treatment not only changes the left brain conscious mind, but more importantly the right brain, the biological substrate of the human unconscious.
