This book was very interesting, to me. It uses scientific changes in the brain to make permanent changes in people's thinking. It's hard for me to explain but I like the concept of doing something that is more than just talking about a problem & really be able to permanently help people see things differently. Of course reading one book isn't going to do this, but at least the option is out there.
This was a great read on a process that helps with dissolving implicit emotional learnings from the limbic system of the brain. All based on a process known as memory reconsolidation. I hope that the technique will grow and spread so we, as therapists, can start helping our clients change their emotional realities instead of having them constantly battle different emotional learnings.
This is a clear and concise review of the really important advances being made in the field of memory, and their clinical implications. The ways in which the brain 'unlocks' memories and then reconsolidates them, either as they were or modified, has huge implications for clinical practice. This is an important book, read it if you work with people to facilitate change.
