About the Presenter:

Vince Callahan received his master’s degree from Regent University in 1986 and began a thirty-six year career as a professional counselor, and educator, working with individuals and families in both private practice and in-patient hospital settings.  As part of the intensive work that has been done, he has studied the needs of children and the impact dysfunctional family systems have on their growth and development.  Fueled by the desire to investigate these and other issues within the field of learning and development he began his doctoral work at Regent University in 2010.  Vince’s doctoral focus has been the neurological impact of emotional trauma and its effect on academic performance.  Intrigued by the implications within the educational system of how emotional trauma effects the learning process and academic performance, Dr. Callahan has spent the last twelve years researching early life stress and neurological development.   A key element that his research uncovered is the viability of creating a relational learning environment within the classroom which would impact the learning ability of children who have experienced early life stress.    Vince has documented over thirty thousand clinical counseling hours of individual and family counseling.  He has worked in many therapeutic venues, in-patient psychiatric hospital units, private practice, church-based counseling centers and PACT teams.  As a Christian counselor he believes in the power of God to “set the captive free” while utilizing sound psychological principles to assist clients in uncovering their interpersonal issues.    Vince has conducted many family conferences throughout the United States and seven foreign countries.  Within the conference setting individuals and families find healing and hope for their pain and dysfunction.      Overview of Professional Career    Years 1-10 (1986-1996)   Extensive work in in-patient psychiatric hospitals, working with both children and adults.  Private practice work providing individual and family counseling.    Years 11-20 (1996-2006).  Developed two-day family conference and presented extensively throughout America and 7 foreign countries.  Conducted in-home counseling, authored several books, appeared on multiple radio and television shows to discuss family issues.    Years 21-36 (2007-Present).  Opened and operated behavioral health company to provide intensive community-based treatment services to severely mentally ill adults.  Began and completed Doctor of Education, Regent University.  Currently, Adjunct professor, business consultant, professional development trainer, workshop presenter, and counselor.      Current Speaking Topics    The Brain Becomes What the Brain Does  Attachment-Resilience-Motivation: The key to Thriving  Understanding the Stressed Brain  The Drama Free Home  Understanding Your Child’s Brain  The Leader’s Brain    As a mental health expert with over three decades of experience I am able to speak on most areas of individual, family related mental health issues.  As someone that has researched the brain and neuroscience topics for the past 13 years I am able to speak on many issues that deal with the brain and behavior.
