Brain change is possible throughout your lifespan due to neuroplasticity. We are fortunate that previously wired-in behavioral patterns and habits can be changed. Our brains contain roadmaps that determine how we see ourselves and the world. These brain "maps" dictate how we: treat ourselves, engage with other people, handle our emotions, relate to the emotions of others, expect to be treated, and so on. Brain science research suggests that redirected attention can change the patterns and habits the brain controls.
What is Neuroplasticity?
Neuroplasticity is an umbrella term for the brain's ability to change and reorganize itself physically and functionally.
Neuroplasticity and Psychotherapy
- The implications of neuroplasticity are nearly limitless, allowing your brain to change, adapt and become more resilient no matter how old you are.
- Learning is central to promoting brain growth neuroplasticity. Psychotherapy will equip you with newly learned skills and techniques.
- As your brain changes in your favor, maladaptive habits will die off and be replaced with adaptive habits, behaviors and feeling management strategies.
