The Interpersonal Neuropsychology Education Group is for coaches interested in knowing more about the brain-mind connection and how this influences the coaching environment. The purpose of this group is to learn about the neurophysiological aspects that affect thinking, learning, emotion processing, information processing, internal and external functioning, and world view. All of these neuropsychological functions affect interpersonal relationships and as such, influence the coaching environment. This makes it essential for all coaches and adult development professionals to understand the human neurological design and how this applies to their coaching techniques as it greatly influences the outcome and effectiveness of their work.
This education group will consider the works of the thought leaders in this field (e.g. Stephen Porges (Polyvagal Theory), Daniel Siegel, Allan Schore, etc.). We propose to have invited speakers such as Dr. André Vermuelen, who is an expert in the field of neuro-agility, Peter Demarest founder of Axiogenics, Dr. Carole Gaskell, Dr. Marcia Reynolds and others. This education group will be member driven, in that each person will be asked to contribute ideas for publications, academic papers, current research and invited speakers. Participants may also lead sessions.
Coaches joining this group will come away with an understanding of neuropsychology and its impact on the coaching relationship. We live in an age where more and more discoveries regarding brain function are being made every day. These are changing the ways in which we approach coaching and work with our clients. Understanding this subject matter will provide skills in working in the mind-heart-gut (or cognition-compassion-intuition) space to help clients achieve lasting change through neuropsychological development.
This is the age of the brain. How well do you know yours? How well do you use this knowledge to affect change in your clients? Join this education group and be part of the journey as we explore this
