Neuroplasticity & the Physiology of Stress: A Mindfulness Perspective

Research on the science of neuroplasticity is beginning to show that these miraculous brains of ours have the capacity to remodel themselves in response to environmental experience. This has great potential to benefit rehab professionals, not only in terms of reducing emotional reactivity and becoming more aware of our own conditioned patterns of behavior, but also as a means of calming our natural stress response and cultivating the skills to become a more effective and resilient healthcare provider.
