Interview with Dr. Jennifer Sweeton
It’s a well known fact that the human brain functions with neuroplasticity, the brain’s ability to modify, change, and adapt both structure and function throughout life and in response to experiences.
Psychotherapists have used this knowledge in applying various therapeutic
techniques to help change a client’s brain in the direction of better mental health.
Neuroscience research is helping that cause by providing insight into why, when,
and with whom specific psychotherapeutic approaches may be beneficial.
“When we know which areas of the brain tend to be impacted by mental illness
and we also know the types of therapeutic techniques that tend to heal those
areas of the brain or shift them in the direction of health, then it allows us to be
more strategic in our therapeutic methods,” says Dr. Jennifer Sweeton, a clinical
and forensic psychologist and internationally-recognized expert on trauma,
anxiety, and the neuroscience of mental health.
The challenge for many therapists, however, is trying to translate all of that great
neuroscience research into practice.
In an effort to help clinicians sort through some of that information, Envision has
invited Dr. Sweeton to hold an online workshop on October 29, 2021 where she will
outline some key areas of the brain that are involved in mental health and illness
and provide examples of psychotherapeutic techniques that have been shown to
alter those areas of the brain in the direction of health and recovery.
According to Dr. Sweeton, getting the best results with the various therapy tools is
more of timing thing, doing things at the right time and in the right order to match
how the brain naturally changes for trauma related symptoms, anxiety and
