Congress Attachment and Trauma

The neurobiology of healing

Over the last decades, the studies on the brain and on psychotherapy have underlined that what happens within the therapist-patient dyad has an impact on the microarchitecture of the brain. Furthermore, with the passing of time, the relationship between the development of several areas of the brain during the process of growth and the experiences that each individual makes later on, has been increasingly explored. Consequently, not only researchers have succeeded in understanding the links between the different areas of the human brain, but they have also become aware of the influence that the functioning of some specific areas of the brain has on the mental health (or the psychopathology) of each human being. Besides this, these studies have shown the effects of every individual's relationships on the development and the functioning of his/her brain all over the course of life.

Modern psychotherapy, based on both neurophysiology and neurobiology, has been increasingly oriented towards the creation of a therapeutic relationship where the therapist has a mindful attitude to his/her own patient, while the latter can make new experiences, which are able to change his/her neural patterns of functioning and to make them healthier.

Some of the most eminent experts in the fields of Cognitive Neurophysiology, Neurobiology and Psychotherapy, will meet in New York to attend the Congress "Attachment and Trauma: The Neurobiology of Healing" - organized, for the very first time, in the "Big Apple", near the vibrant Times Square - to share and integrate their vast knowledge on this subject. After a 60-minute intervention, each speaker will focus on a 30-minute question-and-answer session with the audience. Finally, at the end of each day, all the speakers that have made a presentation will gather in a 180-minute panel discussion, to further analyze different specific topics.
