The Origin of Emotion -- Brain Science That's Changing our View of One's Emotional Blueprint and How to Reconcile this with the DSM 5"

Description: Emotions have increasingly become the focus of most enlightened Americans in the 21st century. Babyboomers and generations beyond were born into a post-psychology world. Ironically, despite this increased access and focus on emotions, things haven't fared well. Mental illness disability is at an all-time high. Assumed to be automatic, innate, and often uncontrollable, emotions have become a critical part of our own inner truth as well as our clients -- often the focus of much of therapy. Until recently science affirmed this notion, believing our emotional blueprint is hard-wired in us, much like the color of our hair, eyes, and the nature of our temperament. Neuroscience has now debunked this myth -- showing that emotion is largely a social construct, often created in the moment and processed by the context of our lives, influenced by systems in the body as well as culture and family.

Take home thought -- you play a significant role in how your emotional life is expressed and this has implications with clients, mental illness diagnoses, and the psychopharmacological medical model of diagnosing mental illness. Come learn the neuroscience behind this discovery and how emotions impact disease, the legal system, and the role trauma plays in emotional dysregulation. Come learn techniques for developing emotional intelligence and the ramifications on all of this when diagnosing depression and other mood and trauma-based disorders such as anxiety, adjustment disorders, and PTSD. A review of treatment protocols that support this new finding will be reviewed, such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Mindfulness-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

Please park in the lot off of 127th Street. There is a bronzed Jayhawk who sits at the main entrance of Regnier Hall. Here is the link to the campus map.
