Emotional Brain Training:
A Powerful Tool For Transformation
Presented by: Gini Gardner, LMFT
When the emotional brain is out of balance
, we naturally develop problems with mood, relationships, behavior, and health. The EBT method focuses on the root cause: stress in the emotional brain. By drawing on the unique proven strategies of EBT, not only can we move ourselves through stress back to well-being, but we can actually rewire our brain to make feeling great our normal state.
Gini Gardner will explain
and demonstrate how EBT provides us with powerful mental tools for processing our emotions and erasing stress circuits in the brain. Using these tools over time improves mood, relationships, behavior, and health, as stress symptoms fade away. The EBT method was developed at UCSF based on neuroscience and attachment theory. Research studies have validated its effectiveness for treating obesity, depression, and hypertension, and EBT can be successfully applied to the full range of stress symptoms.
