Brain Networks | Real Way of Life




 How to rethink, integrate and reconnect

Brain, Mind and Body

to develop more effective interventions

Stress, Adaptation, Emotions and Traumatic Events

Thanks to the recent discoveries of modern applied neuroscience, we are now able to know exactly what happens to our brains, and how to support it, when it is under acute or chronic stress, when going through a traumatic event or when we experience moments of anxiety, distress or depression.

Applied sciences for professionals of the

care, change and development field

Multi-disciplinary Interpretations and

Scientifically Proven Practical Indications useful to:

⇨ 1.  Mind and brain: think and act in terms of “networks” and “systems” which support emotional, thinking, relational and behavioural functions
⇨ 2.  Integrate in our professional practice the dynamics and processes that govern change (plasticity of the nervous system, learning, epigenetics, regulation and modulation, etc.)
⇨ 3.  Know how to give targeted stimuli for self-regulation, integration, development, knowledge, mastery and sense of self, based on the role of “hub” of amygdala, hypothalamus, insula and other structures with a supplementary role between the different network into play 
⇨ 4.  Act at the level of structure and functions involved in the processes of learning and change by intervening on multiple levels and according to a clear plan
⇨ 5.  Reconsider the power of stories, memories and narratives in the light of how hypothalamus, hippocampus, hormones and other parts integrate this data

An Overview of the Main Themes of the Course

Learn more about theory and practice of:

 ✓  From adaptation to Evolution: how Plasticity, Connection and Behaviours develop and recover their functions
✓  Traumatic events, acute and chronic Stress, Disruptive Events can overwhelm Brain, Body and Mind: Why and how to deal with these situations
 ✓  Change operating mode: the central role of Experiences for the brain
✓  Rethink the Multidimensional Integration of mind and body thanks to the Brain Networks and its Hubs
✓  How to reconnect and support the Activation Schemes underlying the processes of Self-Regulation, Emotion, Cognition and Relationships
✓  Promote integrative processes and all their paths through the body, movement, senses, pleasure, sociability, and in every other possible way
 How to use the mechanisms of modification of the brain and of the nervous system to cure somatic or emotional dysfunctions

A complete course divided into

PRACTICAL and CLEAR modules to understand how

the brain works and how we can help it be in physiology and function effectively


⇨ Learn more about specific subject from multiple perspectives, combining theory and practice
⇨ Integrate up-to-date scientific concepts and apply them to daily behaviours and problems
⇨ Identify practical ways to implement what you have learned
⇨ Use specially developed techniques to act on these aspects
⇨ Connect with ease to other themes, techniques and perspectives, thanks to the Integrative Sciences Hub, of which this course represents the starting point (all at an absolutely contained price!)

“This is more than just a course. It allowed me to review a series of concepts that are far more evolved than I thought. I couldn’t have imagined that the idea of the three brains was only a valid metaphor, while today there are many more detailed and precise indications of how the brain works under stress or when facing a traumatic event. The practical indications were very useful too! Thanks for all the work you have done and continue to do to share this information, which is always clear and makes the suggested techniques and practices easy to apply!”

“Every day I work with complex situations. This course, and all the related Integrative Hubs modules, gave me the opportunity to increase my and tools and be more effective in a targeted manner. I am very grateful for the great opportunity of being part of an open system with: constantly updated information, tools that can be used immediately, but that also helps me understand the mechanisms that allow to practice personalized interventions and optimize tools already in my possession.
