A member of the GSE—an Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB) instructor—passed away in November, leaving behind a large enthusiastic following. Karin Bausenbach, MD, was a dynamic presenter in the IPNB program, a certificate program taught online and in person at PSU for human services professionals and other professionals interested in the impact of positive relationships on the brain.
“Dr. Karin was a passionate and inspiring teacher, driven to ensure that her students really learned about the brain,” said IPNB Program Director Marion Sharp. “She quizzed everyone regularly, and students quickly learned to be prepared for this. With every repeated question, we all laid down and reinforced new neural pathways of learning—and we laughed . . . a lot!”
