Nice way to put that, Eric. Neuroscience informed and humanistically focused
I have been wondering recently about how well the neurocounseling movement has been making it to the various counseling specialties. I see more coming from the clinical mental health counselors, but have you seen much coming from school counselors, rehabilitation counselors, etc.? The debate we are focusing on today seems to mirror some of the debates between the specialties I have seen recently.
When I read the Wilkinson article, I wanted to understand his point that humanistic counseling needs to maintains it's core values, yet his language of neuroscience-supported vs.humanistically informed, counselors is still unclear to me. What is he saying is the difference between supported vs. informed?
Makes sense- thanks
Brian - I haven't forgotten about your question...such a good one and I think a great transition I will keep in mind moving forward.
that's fine. I am quite patient
Dr. Miller, could you provide the name of that neuroscientist here in the chat?

While I need to jump off for a client session, I thank you for this informative session. As you asked for feedback earlier, as a psychotherapist, incorporation of neuroscience education has been helpful in session with my clients. In a way, it helps to give them a visual of their issues esp in use of CBT or diagnoses of ADHD. Thank you especially to Dr. Beeson for planting the seeds of neuroscience when I was a student at NU. My appreciation to all of you!
Thanks very much!
Thank you so much
