Conference Presenters training workshops for sand tray therapy Registration Information
Bonnie Badenoch, PhD, LMFT is an in-the-trenches therapist, supervisor, teacher and author who has spent the last five years integrating the discoveries of
neuroscience into the art of therapy. She co-founded the Center for Hope and Healing (CHH) in Irvine, California in 1991, and in 2004, joined Daniel Siegel's interpersonal neurobiology study group, sub- sequently becoming one of the founders of the nonprofit organiza- tion, Global Association for Interpersonal Neurobiology Studies (GAINS). Out of this study, combined with her 19 years of working with survivors of trauma and attachment struggles, came her book, Being a Brain-Wise Therapist: A Practical Guide to Interpersonal Neurobiology, published in 2008. Bonnie has a gift for translating the complexities of brain science into words and examples that allow people to internalize the prin- ciples so they can use them in the counseling room. Her article, "Brain to Brain: Applying the Wisdom of Neuroscience in Your Practice," is featured in the Sept/Oct 2008 issue of Psychotherapy Networke , and she presented Being a Brain-Wise Therapist at the March 2009 Psychotherapy Networker Conference.

Theresa served as a senior staff psychologist at the Albuquerque Family and Child Guidance Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico where she specialized in child, adolescent and family therapy, con- sultations with the Indian Health Service, and consultations with the Albuquerque Public Schools. She supervised psychology, counseling and psychiatry trainees as an adjunct faculty member at the University of New Mexico, and she served as the first president of the New Mexico Association for Play Therapy.

If you have not already read Bonnie's book on being a brain-wise therapist, give yourself a treat and settle in for a poetic description of the practical applications of interper- sonal neurobiology in clinical practice. It is definitely a 5- star book, and it is an important resource for every therapist who is serious about incorporating the rapidly developing neuroscience of the last decade. Dr. Daniel Siegel sums it up accurately in the introduction to her book:
"Being a Brain-Wise Therapist is filled with the wisdom of a seasoned front-line therapist who writes like a poet and understands science
as if she were a full-time academician."
Daniel Siegel, M.D.
