As clinicians strive to adhere to evidence-based practice, some are asking: what about the relationship? What once defined psychotherapy, the therapeutic alliance has now become a given, overlooked and often misunderstood. New evidence from the neurosciences demonstrates that more than ever, as clinicians we must understand and learn how to use the therapeutic relationship, or more specifically right-brain to right-brain interactions, for best outcomes in treatment. In this training, we will present a working model of Interpersonal Neurobiology in an easy-to-understand and easy-to-apply format, so that clinicians can use the latest advancements in neuroscience to inform their clinical practice. Using a case study based on a shared teenage client, the facilitators describe the overall process and specific steps they took in applying approaches informed by Interpersonal Neurobiology, and how these approaches collaborated to form a successful treatment outcome in support of this troubled teen.
