Who is considered a Neuroplastician™ ?The Neuroplastician™ is a non-clinical practitioner, educator, or coach who specializes in applied neuroscience. These professionals may be certified coaches, healthcare practitioners, educators, or organizational consultants. It is important to note that Neuroplasticians are not considered medical professionals and cannot provide medical advice. Watch The Video:
What is the difference between a Neuroplastician™ and a Neuroscientist?A neuroscientist is an academic scientist who studies the nervous system, the brain, spinal cord, and neurons, to understand how they influence disease and behavior. A Neuroplastician™ uses the knowledge from the science and brings it to life by applying specific tools to increase neuroplasticity from behavior change. Increased neuroplasticity has a significantly positive impact on desired behavior, emotional processing, cognitive power, memory, creativity, health, and well-being.
Who can get certified as a Neuroplastician™ ?Every Practitioner in Applied Neuroscience has a chance to become a Certified Neuroplastician™. The level of certification depends on previous training, expertise, and artifacts in the public domain.
Why should I bother about becoming a Neuroplastician™?Neuroscience is a trending science and comes along with rising demand in professional certification programs. Many coaches, educators, and healthcare practitioners look for qualified providers to become a Certified Neuroplastician™ themselves. But there are not many. In collaboration with our training partners and over 20 highly qualified advisory board members, we have introduced the Neuroplastician™ Certification. The Neuroplastician™ Certification is not a training qualification. It is evidence of your previous qualification in applied neuroscience being effective to skill you in the practices of neuroplasticity. Watch the video :
