Weekend Training Courses


Two Day or Three Day Short Courses are designed for clinicians who want to learn how to maximize adaptive functioning of their patient’s brain through the use of the energy and information from different Brain Systems.

The workshops are hands on: dynamic and interactive exercises, DVD recordings of actual clinical sessions, and therapy demonstrations and practice activities.

As a clinician, you will experience first hand how to harness the positive and adaptive neuropathways that are always present in the brain.

If there are currently no trainings offered in your area or your desired timeframe, there are real advantages to learning the concepts and treatments of CIMBS online right now.  Each of our online trainings are direct recordings of past weekend workshops and are suitable for complete beginners.  Plus online, you can take the learning slowly and let it settle in gradually.  Go back and see it again, and you will learn something more the second or even third time.  Click HERE for more information!

We have all been challenged by the emotions of fear, shame, grief and guilt.  They are often aversive and easily intimidating.  There is a natural tendency to avoid these emotions and yet they play such an important role in human relationships.  We have found that exploring these emotions from a brain systems’ perspective can be empowering and liberating for both the therapist and patient alike.

This course will introduce you to the Fear, Grief, Shame and Guilt emotional brain systems.  These brain systems can be called the Secondaries because they are processed within the secondary-level [basal nuclei and cerebellum] of the central nervous system. They often play a significant role in the lives and symptoms of our patients.  Why is that?  What can we do about it?  Each of these brain systems are nonconscious and so we and our patients are usually unaware of their impact in their emotional lives.

Once your registration is received, we will follow up with details on how to pay for the course.

We hope to see you there!
