“Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow.”
—Anthony J. D’Angelo
Just in time for summer, it’s with great excitement that I present to you my new course: The Mindsight Approach to Well-Being: A Comprehensive Course in Interpersonal Neurobiology.
If you’ve ever seen me speak, you may have realized that I have something I jokingly refer to as “AED” – Attention Excess Disorder. I could speak about the topics I love for 12 straight hours! And while a strength of mine, I’ve also received requests to create a concise course with clinical focus, practical tools and useful exercises. This course was a growing experience for me as I hope it will be for you, too. What a great opportunity for us all to practice what Carol Dweck calls a growth mindset: viewing new challenges as opportunities to learn and grow – and I have to say, I had so much fun filming this course and learning from the immersive process!
Carefully conceived and constructed, this 36-hour training features the most current research in neuroscience and mindsight, offers guided practices and reflective exercises, and presents detailed case examples and conversations on how to clinically implement the science offered throughout the course. I also wanted to film the course in a way that has a very personal feel to it – that is, me speaking to you through the camera – to highlight the important ways relationships impact our inner lives and learning experience.
This is also the first place in which I offer my Integrative Movement Series – a guided, 10-step practice that embodies the 9 domains of integration. This practice, alternating with the Wheel of Awareness practice, is something I do nearly every morning to support mind-body awareness and move vital life energy in a way that supports integration.
While many of our students are mental health professionals, this course is designed to be applicable to those that work in many different fields – from teaching to coaching to those in the mindfulness field and those with more general interests – and is appropriate for all experience levels. The course takes you through a thorough exploration of the mind, body and brain, and relationships, including attachment, along with the 9 domains of integration that, together, encompass the wide array of experiences we have every day in life that directly influence well-being. And, since every person learns differently, I’ve created a course outline to make note-taking easy as well as an index of all the research mentioned throughout the course for additional learning opportunities.
