I am happy to announce another brand-new professional and personal development course, Anxiety, Depression and Interpersonal Neurobiology 2.0, with some of the most respected and trusted leaders in the field, Drs. Linda Mintle, Paul Meier and Curt Thompson. These three, one-hour presentations are a must for every counselor, pastor, lay leader and caregiver.
Anxiety, depression and bipolar disorders are among the most commonly diagnosed presenting problems any counselor will face. Together, they represent the predominant mental disorders found in the United States. Research outcomes and evidence-based protocols are constantly being pursued and updated.
If you are looking for resources to help you more effectively help those who are struggling with these issues, this three-hour course is for you. This course not only addresses the spectrum of disorders from both a medical and clinical perspective, but also explores the exciting new world of interpersonal neurobiology.
This new, three-hour study program is a DVD-based training platform tailored just for you—the Christian counselor.
Presented by Linda Mintle, Ph.D.
Anxiety and related problems represent the most common mental disorders in the United States. As such, clinicians must be able to provide timely and effective care. Evidence-based treatments for anxiety disorders include exposure treatments. This presentation identifies six types of anxiety disorders, as well as three methods of delivery and recent innovations regarding exposure treatments. Emphasis is placed on learning the specific techniques of relaxation, systematic desensitization, and exposure plus response prevention.
Presented by Paul Meier, M.D.
Depression and its related aftermath are common presenting problems for most counselors. Bipolar spectrum and mood disorders are often genetically based and can show up at any age. Most often, however, symptoms first appear in a client’s 20s or 30s. This lecture discusses how to diagnostically differentiate between each type on the broader spectrum and examine medical and therapeutic treatment options. Important changes and updates from the DSM-5 are also be explored.
Presented by Curt Thompson, M.D.
Christian spiritual formation and mental health can be characterized as a process of holistic integration. The emerging research in the field of interpersonal neurobiology helpfully provides insight into how attuning to the intersection of the mind, brain and relationships not only leads to healthier mental states, but also more mature spiritual character. This presentation explores the nine domains of integration and their application to overall client care and spiritual maturation.
When you successfully finish this program (more than 200,000 students have enrolled in a Light University course), you will earn a Certificate of Completion.
Continuing Education credits are also available, if needed, for mental health professionals.
