IPNB and Empathy Teleseminar. Single or Series (Telephone and Web)

Each monthly IPNB Teleseminar with Sarah is a 1-1/2 hour exploration of current research into the brain and how it behaves in relationship.

Sarah uses the lenses of Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB) and Nonviolent Communication (NVC) to emphasize how we change and heal in relationship with one another. The participants call in on a joint conference call line while viewing a web-based visual presentation, to engage the information through multiple channels. There is usually an additional 1/2 hour wrap-up after the initial session is over so that people can comment on what is significant to them – this provides the learning community with another way to integrate the information. Recordings and visuals are provided to participants and subscribers.

PRICE: $20 per drop in and/or recording of session

TIME: 7-8:30 p.m. Pacific time:


IPNB and Empathy ZOOM Webinar in October, Tuesday evening 10/24 at 7pm Pacific time: Addiction, Habits and Free Will: Empathy for Choice and Decision Fatigue, with a nod to the Basal Ganglia  (90 minutes with optional 30 min q&a afterwards)

What is happening with brains and the “decisions” we make that lead us toward and away from our addictions and compulsions? How do we support healthy decision making and get as much help as possible to do something different from old, unhealthy patterns? Do our brains get tired from making decisions? And what about that darned marshmallow test? In this webinar, Sarah will explore all aspects of decision-making that touch on addictions and compulsions, and invite new learning about the parts of the brain that are involved, and where to leverage our empathy skills to bring ourselves the most relief.

We will conduct this webinar using the Zoom webinar techonology so that you will be able to see my screen with me rather than having to download slides, although that will still be possible for those of you who enjoy seeing the notes section of the slides where the research is quoted.

***NEW FEATURE***  This webinar will take place using Zoom online video technology, so you can directly view Sarah's slides, and see her during the call.  (If you speak, you will have the option to show or hide your video, and you do not need to have a webcam or computer to participate; phone-only connection is still available.)
