The Cincinnati Christian University Department of Behavioral Sciences is pleased to present the 2014 Spring Counseling Summit featuring Curth Thompson, M.D.
The emerging field of interpersonal neurobiology (IPNB) has demonstrated the helpfulness of an integrated approach toward developing healthier minds and human systems. People who sustain neuropsychiatric distress at all levels of severity realize greater resilience when this integrated approach is applied to the process of healing. Two subjects of particular interest related to healing and IPNB are those of shame and addiction. These are closely related in their complimentary neurological expression and the role that secure attachment plays in their proper regulation. IPNB also provides implications for and informs the use of mindfulness-based spiritual practices that support the healing process of shame. This workshop will explore fundamental aspects of interpersonal neurobiology; define the basic features of shame and addiction, and their interlocking neurobiological functions; and identify mindfulness-based spiritual practices that enhance the psychotherapeutic process of healing.
