    The 2nd International Conference of Applied Neuroscience

    21-23 May 2020

    Rydges On Swanston, 701 Swanston Street

    Melbourne, Australia

    The 2nd International Association of Applied Neuroscience Conference will cover a variety of applied neuroscience topics. Topics will run in streams and there will be ample opportunity to choose which presentations to attend.
    The conference will be preceded by a one-day workshop on 20th May (0830-1500) by Dr Louis Cozolino, who is also a keynote speaker for the conference.

    Dr. Cozolino has diverse clinical and research interests and hold degrees in philosophy, theology, and clinical psychology. His interests are in the areas of the synthesis of neuroscience with psychotherapy, education, management, and leadership. He is the author of seven books The Neuroscience of Psychotherapy, The Social Neuroscience of Education, The Neuroscience of Human Relationships, The Healthy Aging Brain, Attachment-Based Teaching, The Making of a Therapist, and Why Therapy Works. He has also authored and co-authored articles and book chapters on child abuse, schizophrenia, education, language and cognition. Dr. Cozolino lectures around the world on brain development, evolution, and psychotherapy and maintains and clinical and consulting practice in Los Angeles.

    Over the last fifty years, the faith that past generations may have placed in education as a path to economic opportunity has been eroding. Many no longer view public education as a worthwhile investment, making it increasingly vulnerable to declines in resources and quality. This shift is reflected in rates of student dropout, teacher burnout, and a flight to private and home schooling. In some quarters, the perception of public schools has shifted from a solution to social and economic problems, to a problem in and of itself.

    In this talk, Louis Cozolino will address this challenge and more, through the lens of human relationships. The goal of this workshop is to teach participants how an understanding of brain evolution, social neuroscience, and group behavior can inform, impact, and change our approach to education in powerful ways. By placing healthy and secure attachment at the center of learning, he argues, we can turbocharge plasticity, enhance learning, and improve schools.
