Neuroplasticity: Practice Makes Perfect

Date: 19 Sep 2018

Hong Kong

Neuroplasticity is the brain's amazing capacity to change and adapt throughout our lifetime, and it refers to the connections among the cells in our brains to reorganize in response to our changing needs. This is the 'muscle building' part of the brain; the things we do often we become stronger at, and what we don't use fades away.

And how is this related to psychotherapy? Well, psychotherapy effects a change in the mind. And if it is effective in doing so, it will lead to lasting changes in conscious content, and potentially in the process of consciousness itself. Few other human endeavors seek so systematically to produce predictable enduring variation in emotion, cognition, behavior and somatic perceptions; changes which can persist for many years beyond the end of therapy.

In this talk, Dr. Wong will discuss how she was inspired by the bestsellers The Brain That Changes Itself and The Brain's Way of Healing by Dr. Norman Doidge, and what this means to those practicing psychotherapy.
