Romancing the Brain: Conflict Resolution in Recovery - 1 CE
With funding from NIDA, Cynthia Moreno Tuohy and Danya International developed and evaluated a multi-component, multi-media tool for use by addiction and other helping professionals to assist adults and youth improve their life traumas and conflict through skills that are an intensive set of psycho-emotional-social-spiritual Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) treatments. The goals of these treatments are to understand the processes in the limbic and frontal cortex and how to develop self-regulation by building new neuropathways. Information is based in brain research and CBT treatments that have been effective for treatment and recovery. Other techniques are employed that unify the principles of social learning and emotional intelligence theory. This program affects behavioral learning with emotional development and maturity that results in long-term changes in the brain and behavior.
