A primer on brain functionality as it relates to therapeutic work.
This book, organized around different areas of the brain, presents therapists with the basic neurobiology they need to understand their clients' behaviors and actions. Each chapter defines terms, explains the brain structure, and presents a detailed clinical case, with neurobiologically informed commentary. Essential for therapists in this age of the science of psychotherapy, this book will also be of interest to students, educators, and clinical supervisors.
