“Interpersonal neurobiology embraces the perspective of a triangle of well being: relationships, the mind, and the brain.”
—Daniel J. Siegel, M.D.
Director, Mindsight Institute
Translating the new neuroscience—particularly interpersonal neurobiology—into useful clinical practice can be both mysterious and difficult for many mental health clinicians. Join Bonnie Badenoch, Ph.D., author of Being a Brain-Wise Therapist: A Practical Guide to Interpersonal Neurobiology, to learn about brain science and how it forms the basis for evidence-based treatment. Take home practical skills designed to not only improve treatment outcomes but also your relationship with clients.
This seminar recording is based on Dr. Badenoch’s work in interpersonal neurobiology. Explore scientifically grounded means for changing implicit, explicit and autobiographical memories. You will be able to recognize the four patterns of attachment in yourself and your clients, as well as learn how to help clients heal these wounds. Finally, we will explore the relationship between early attachment experiences and severe diagnoses like borderline personality and PTSD.
Dr. Badenoch will translate neuroscience into practical and concrete techniques for you to improve treatment
outcomes. Through the use of case studies, mindfulness and self-reflection, you will end the day with new, evidence-based skills and a sense of purpose in your work—no matter your clinical setting.

About the Presenter:
Bonnie Badenoch, Ph.D., LMFT is an in-the-trenches therapist, supervisor, consultant, teacher and author who has spent the last seven years integrating the discoveries of neuroscience into the art of therapy. Out of this study—combined with her 19 years of working with survivors of trauma and attachment struggles—came her book, Being a Brain-Wise Therapist: A Practical Guide to Interpersonal Neurobiology, published in 2008 as part of Norton’s Interpersonal Neurobiology Series. It will be followed in 2011 by Being a Brain-Wise Therapist: A Workbook. Therapists are saying that her book fills the gap between science and practice, and does it with compassion and heart. She teaches in Portland State University’s Interpersonal Neurobiology Certificate program and speaks internationally. Additionally, Bonnie consults with fellow clinicians and educators; works with agencies to implement IPNB principles; speaks around the country and assists other IPNB enthusiasts in their writing endeavors.
In 2006, she was one of 6 co-founders of GAINS (Global Association of Interpersonal Neurobiology Studies), a nonprofit educational organization that promotes application of the principles of IPNB as articulated by Daniel J. Siegel, Allan Schore, Louis Cozolino and others. As part of her mission to share this transforming wisdom with clinicians and educators, she is also editor-in-chief of Connections & Reflections, GAINS quarterly publication. She has a gift for translating the complexities of brain science into words, experiences and examples that allow people to internalize the principles, so they can use them in the counseling room.
