The Graduate Certificate in Applied Neuroscience is a four unit course, and is available on a part-time basis only.
Applied neuroscience is a multidisciplinary perspective drawn from the fields of human biology, psychology, education, and psychotherapy, enhancing the practice of professionals working with people.
By integrating the findings of the relatively young discipline of neuroscience with the more traditional emotional, cognitive, behavioural, developmental, and social knowledge of psychology, neuropsychotherapy provides a framework for understanding the human condition from a holistic perspective. Neuropsychotherapy strives to shift the brain into a state that enables these basic needs to be fully satisfied and resulting in best possible outcomes in people’s lives by engaging the brain through implicit memory rather than relying purely on language and explicit memory.
“Completing the Graduate Certificate in Applied Neuroscience provided me with the skills, knowledge and opportunity to not just discuss and learn about the brain and how it impacts teaching and learning; but also to implement practical strategies and processes that create an enriched environment where children and people can thrive. I would highly recommend this course.”
