DEBRA PREMASHAKTI ALVIS, PH.D., C-IAYT, RYT

Debra Premashakti Alvis, Ph.D. C-IAYT, RYT, is a licensed psychologist and private practitioner with over 25 years of brain-based, clinical experience. She specializes in applying neuroscientific principals to enhance clinical outcomes. Debra’s interest in brain-based therapy began in the early 1990’s while studying neuroanatomy. Her curiosity about how psychotherapeutic interventions could best engage the brain’s capacity to grow and change led her to study with leading experts Dan Siegel, Rick Hanson, and Bonne Badenbach. She then combined this neuroscientific foundation with attachment, somatic, and mindfulness based cognitive behavioral approaches. She discovered that wedding brain-based principals with body oriented and traditional psychotherapeutic orientations helped clients to recover more easefully and quickly form mood, trauma, and substance abuse concerns. In addition, clients more frequently practiced the strategies required to maintain recovery and move toward thriving. Debra has refined the application of this integrative model through her work in private practice and as a clinical supervisor, educator, and consultant. She developed and led the Mind/Body Program at the University of Georgia where she now teaches undergraduate students to use brain based strategies to further their self-development, offers training to graduate students in applying neuroscience to their clinical work, and develops brain-based research studies. A 30-year personal contemplative practice and over a thousand hours training as a mindfulness and yoga teacher further enrich her presentations. Join Debra, a seasoned and sought after international presenter and consultant, for an experiential day offering abundant mind tools, professional renewal, and personal restoration.
