The Professional Course in Positive Neuroplasticity

The Science of Changing Your Brain for the Better

The Positive Neuroplasticity Training (PNT) teaches you how to make the most of your beneficial experiences – so you can have more happiness, self-worth, resilience, and motivation.
The Professional Course (PC) is hands-on and practical, showing you how to apply these powerful methods in your work with others. It’s designed for therapists, coaches, educators, healthcare workers, mindfulness trainers, and more.
In a pilot study on these methods, people reported statistically significant increases in happiness, resilience, and love, and decreases in anxiety and depression – even months later.
