+++  Relational Neurobiology @ISR2017 – The benefits and use of neuroscience for couples and families +++

November 5, 2016

Brains are not mostly made for thinking – they are primary social organs. Of course, this is a simplified statement, but it describes quite well the major findings of a scientific discipline dealing with the associations of human relationships and neurobiological processes such as the release of neurotransmitter, the stimulation of neuroplasticity or changes in brain activity: Relational Neurobiology.

We are very proud that two female colleagues with a lot of expertise in this field have accepted our invitation to join us for the ISR2017:
Prof. Dr. Beate Ditzen
director of the Institute for Medical Psychology at the Heidelberg University Hospital, investigates stress hormones in couples as well as oxytocin and vasopressin in stress and anxiety in men and women.
Dr. Mona Fishbane
, director of the Couple Therapy Training Program at the Chicago Center for Family Health, integrates "news from neuroscience" with a systemic approach to therapy. (We recommend her wonderful book "Loving with the Brain in Mind: Neurobiology & Couple Therapy"!)

Both will present their findings in a symposium at the conference, and will also discuss them in a panel ("Is RelationalNeurobiology Of Any Use For Psychotherapists?”) along with two other brilliant minds:
Dr. Diane R. Gehart, professor of Marriage and Family Therapy at California State University, Northridge, is an expert in the field of mindfulness in couple and family therapy. She will discuss the neurobiology of mindfulness and its implications for relational/systemic therapists, including its links to interpersonal neurobiology.
Prof. Dr. Thomas Fuchs, Karl Jaspers Professor for Philosophical Foundations of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, questions the Zeitgeist dominance of neuroscience and reminds us, that without philosophical-humanistic perspectives, such as phenomenology and existentialism, neuroscience can be misleading, “undercomplex" and even dangerous in its biological determinism extremes

Neurobiology and Neuroscience are “hip” – let's see in which ways serious researchers approach their advantages and disadvantages for Systemic Therapy!
