For a long time, it has been considered that thought, or the most cognitive part of the brain (the cortex), was the part that determined the behaviors and even the emotional states of the human being”

Today we know, thanks to scientific research, that information coming from a stimulus reaches the limbic structures of the brain before it reaches the neocortex. It is precisely these limbic structures that are responsible for functions such as emotional processing, memory creation or learning processes. 

Moreover, unlike the cerebral cortex, which completes its maturation process around the age of 21, the limbic system is fully functioning from before birth, so we begin to know and learn what the world is from subcortical structures within a brain that is mainly emotional. It is for all these reasons that, using the words of psychologist Roberto Aguado: "Emotion decides and reason justifies".

Professionals who complete this program will acquire the knowledge required to offer their patients more effective and quality treatment, through numerous techniques that work precisely from the place where the conflict is generated; emotion. You will also be able to conduct preventive and personal growth therapies, since the program is not only oriented towards the clinical area, but also at being able to help others to grow emotionally and lead a more fulfilling life.
