Dr Lou Cozolino Masterclass | Childhood Trauma: Strategies and Interventions

March 28, 2019 @ 9:00 AM - 12:30 PM WST

$129 – $199

Child Australia is honoured to host Dr Lou Cozolino for this exclusive Masterclass in Perth. Dr Cozolino, a clinical psychologist and professor of psychology at Pepperdine University US has spent years researching and writing in the field of neuroscience and psychotherapy. He has been described as “a master at synthesizing neuroscientific information and demonstrating how it applies to practice.”

With a unique ability for using anecdotal clinical material and stories to unpack complex ideas, Dr Cozolino will take the audience on an exploration of neuroscience and its relationship to the underlying mechanisms of action in the therapeutic process.

Over the 3 hrs, Dr Cozolino will take participants through:

  • How the effects of early stress on brain development may help to better tailor treatments to particular clients who have experienced various forms of trauma.

  • General principles for the optimisation of neuroplasticity and change.

  • This Masterclass will give delegates an additional framework from which to build interventions from existing strategies already used.

“Knowing about neuroscience is invaluable for therapists, not because it offers specific new techniques or clinical theories, but because it provides a deeper understanding of the biological power of the ‘talking cure.’”

– Dr Louis Cozolino
