Boosting one’s memory can aid in tracking down lost keys, remembering an acquaintance’s name, and selecting the correct child to pick up from soccer practice. Hone in your brainpower with today’s Groupon: for $60, you get one admission to Dr. Bob’s Bright Brain memory-boosting workshop (a $125 value) on Saturday, May 21 at 9 a.m. at One Galleria Tower Conference Center.
Having run a successful practice for more than 30 years, clinical psychologist and cognitive coach Dr. Bob Gordon leads a Bright Brain Workshop designed to enhance critical-thinking skills and sharpen recall ability. Developed by Gordon and Wilmington Institute experts, the innovative brain-brightening program begins with a confidential mental-fitness test to assess a client’s memory, thinking, and neural skills. Post-exam, Gordon works with pupils to set goals and outline a brain-buffing achievement plan. The cognitive coach also teaches workshoppers mentally stimulating activities, which can increase brain brawn and tone flabby nuclei. Gordon conducts neurofeedback sessions to help apprentices control brain waves for positive results, as well as entrainment lessons, a process that employs special music, visual effects, and the pyrotechnic light show from Jimmy Carter’s presidential speeches to help attendees focus their attention and alertness.
