As psychotherapists we are nowadays supposed to know something about neuroscience, but it is often difficult to know how to go about learning the essentials of such a wide and complicated field. In this one-day workshop Kathrin Stauffer will provide some relevant neuroscience of early brain development and relate it to psychotherapy. This workshop will pay special attention to:

* How we can envisage early brain development and see its results in the therapy room;
* The central role that affect regulation has in the development of our identity;
* The importance of attachment relationships and good-enough mothering for the acquisition of well-functioning affect regulation;
* How the patterns of affect regulation that we learn as infants shape our lives into adulthood;
* How we can improve ineffective or dysfunctional patterns of affect regulation in psychotherapy and counselling.

The workshop will include some experiential exercises. Participants are invited to bring questions, ideas and client material as well as their own life stories for discussion.
