Functional Neuroanatomy 101- Workshop for allied health workers

Saturday 21st March 2020 morning and afternoon and Saturday 28th March morning

Understanding the human brain is seen by many as a complex and sometimes unachievable area for learning and ongoing professional development, but it shouldn’t be! Come and explore the human brain through a functional systems approach and learn how to understand brain-behaviour relationships in your daily work.

 This series of seminars is primarily aimed at Professional level Allied Health disciplines; Speech Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Social Workers, Music Therapists, Play Therapists, Art Therapists and Psychologists, but students are also welcome. No prior knowledge of the human brain is assumed.

The 3 session course is outlined below, and touches on basic anatomy and key functional brain systems, thinking frameworks to guide knowledge and reasoning, and how to apply these to working with people.

Session 1: Introduction to the human brain: infant to adult

  • Basic introduction to the human brain
  • Outline of key functional systems
  • Brain Quiz

Session 2: Key frameworks to guide learning

  • Emotions, Memory and Language systems through a dysfunction lens
  • Brain detectives: How the external tells us about the internal

Session 3: Relating knowledge to the real world

  •  Workshopping of your own case with the group
