A brief guide to the most important neuroscience concepts for all mental health professionals.
Louis Cozolino helps clinicians to broaden their thinking and deepen their clinical toolbox through an understanding of neuroscience, brain development, epigenetics and the role of attachment in brain development and behaviour.
The effective therapist must have knowledge of evolution and neuroanatomy, as well as the systems of our brains and how they work together to give rise to who we are, how we thrive and why we suffer. This book will give clinicians all they need to understand the social brain, the developing brain, the executive brain, consciousness, attachment, trauma, memory and the latest information about clinical assessment. Key figures and terms of neuroscience, along with numerous case examples, bring the material to life.
Cozolino is one of the most gifted clinical writers on neuroscience and his long- awaited pocket guide is a must-buy for any clinician working on the cutting edge of treatment.
