Keynote: J Neurol Neurophysiol
Today the necessity to better understand the complex world of emotional regulation is evident in the process of screening, assessment, case formulation, and treatment of patients with co-occurring disorders. This presentation will bring theory into the arena of evidenced-based treatment to one of the most difficult populations, co-occurring disorders. It explores the nature of emotional regulation, the predominant underlying theories, client resilience and resistance, and the interaction between the autonomic nervous system, the physiology of emotion, and application in diagnosis, assessment, treatment, and remediation. This presentation covers the foundation and process of controlling emotions for some potentially damaging myths about emotions, and the key habits of emotionally resilient people. This study takes emotion out of the theoretical laboratory and into the practical application of fostering emotional maturity and resilience in the care and treatment of patients with co-occurring disorders including case study analysis.
