Transforming Anxiety and Stress
by Integrating the Embodied Brain

Apply the principles of Interpersonal Neurobiology (“IPNB”) to help your clients transform their stress and anxiety into resilience and well-being.

Anxiety and stress are prevalent

Whether you are a mental health practitioner, physician, or parent, you have undoubtedly experienced heightened levels of anxiety and stress in your professional or personal life in the last two years. In fact, anxiety has become the most common mental health challenge in the United States, affecting 40 million people annually.

Traditional approaches focus on just managing anxiety and stress

Although there are several methods for reducing anxiety and stress, many focus on managing the experience, rather than integrating it.

The IPNB approach to transfrorming stress and anxiety

Through the lens of IPNB, anxiety is understood as an outcome of an individual’s state of mind based on their subjective experience and the ways that the human brain functions as an “anticipation machine” as it gets ready for what might happen next.  When the stress of getting ready for something meaningful to happen arises, this predictive tendency of the brain can then narrate panic as we inadvertently construct our own mental images of a threatening future of our own imagination. By cultivating the mental functions of attention, intention, and awareness, we strengthen our ability to identify the source of anxiety and then harness the capacity to promote integration, transforming the energy of threat and alarm into the drive toward resilience and harmony.

Course Overview

Although many therapeutic techniques look to eliminate stress and anxiety as a source of suffering, few describe how the experience can be utilized as a catalyst for transformation. In this program, we will take a closer look at the difference between anxiety and stress, and how these two experiences are fundamental components to the process of resilience and healing. By understanding the mind as an emergent, fully embodied, self-organizing process, you will be able to harness the power of the mind to process and integrate stress in an empowered way.

Through the lens of interpersonal neurobiology (IPNB), anxiety is understood as an outcome of an individual’s state of mind based on their subjective experience. By analyzing attention, intention, and awareness, we can not only identify the source of anxiety, but how to combine these properties to promote integration and resolution.

In this program, you will learn how to incorporate teachings from neuroscience, psychology, quantum physics, and contemplative practices, to discover an integrative approach for helping individuals transform their brain by building the capacity to integrate energy and information.
