Understanding the neurobiology of the brain not only explains how change happens, it also translates into more effective psychotherapy. In this dynamic demonstration-workshop, Sue Johnson, EdD and James Coan PhD offer a dialogue demonstrating the relevance of neuroscience to the process of repairing couples relationships. Together the presenters will review recorded couples therapy sessions to explore how neurobiological insights can inform and help shape a therapist’s moment-by-moment decision-making.

• Describe how to make your interventions more efficient by tapping into the processes of relational regulation.
• Determine when clients can't self-soothe or access higher brain functions and intervene accordingly.
• Identify the relevance of neuroscience to the process of repairing couples relationships.
