Don’t miss Jon Baylin workshops in New York City, November 2017

Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to hear Jon Baylin PhD., co-author of Brain Based Parenting, speak in New York this November.

Putting the Brain in Treatment

He will deliver Putting the Brain in Treatment, a study day for professionals and clinicians on November 3, 2017.

“Jonathan Baylin, PhD will be presenting a brain-based model of therapeutic processes applicable for interpersonal and intrapersonal treatment contexts. The model lays the groundwork for discussing how different therapeutic processes can promote neural integration, including “top down, bottom up, left-right, back-front” levels of integration…

Using this brain-based model, we could then look together at cases and discuss them by applying concepts from the model. The goal would be to help therapists think in brain-based terms about the work and to use the brain-based model as a framework for treatment planning.”


This event it open to practitioners/clinicians who have already had some formal training in AEDP, EFT, DDP or other attachment focused or trauma focused training.

More information and booking links can be found on the event page.

‘Why Does My Child Lie and Steal Without Feeling Bad?’

Jon will also be presenting Why Does My Child Lie and Steal Without Feeling Bad?’: How Mistrustful Children’s Brains Adapt to Protect Themselves and Frustrate Those Around Them, a workshop for parents and students on November 4.

The first part of the day will focus on learning about the effects of early experiences on brain development, and how this channels the brain towards trust-based or mistrust-based strategies for living among other people.

Concepts of Blocked Trust and Blocked Care will be introduced and in the second part of the day, prevention and treatment of Blocked Care will be discussed. There will be in depth explanations on the supporting neuroscience and the relevance to developing compassionate, trustworthy relationships with children who exhibit challenging behavior.

More information about this event can be found on the event page.

Both events are organised by Adoption/Foster Care Therapist Network, NY (AFCTN).

Early-bird pricing is available until September 1, 2017, so book your place now before you miss your chance.
