The story of why psychotherapy actually works.

Drawing on decades of experience and research, Louis Cozolino offers a clear, concise, and evidence-based explanation of why psychotherapy is an effective source of healing and positive change.

The story of why psychotherapy works begins with the brain. We must understand how it evolved to learn, unlearn, and relearn. We have to understand the power of human relationships to regulate anxiety and stimulate learning, and that the way we interact with the world physically, emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually has been woven into our social brains. Finally, we must understand the role of stories and our ability to edit our own stories to change the patterns of our lives for the better.

This is not the story of one form of therapy; it is the underlying story of all therapies that have the power to create meaningful change, and where that power comes from.

Reviews and Endorsements:

“Why Therapy Works is a tour de force. Too often today the public thinks that one can read a book or watch a documentary and be transformed psychologically. Unfortunately, that is not how the human mind works. Humans require other minds for change and change is hard. We are ‘embodied and embedded’ in an interpersonal matrix. To understand the human experience and create change, we must move from a single-skull understanding to an intersubjective context of two or more minds. Louis Cozolino explains this phenomenon in a manner easy to digest, taking the reader from the evolutionary heritage of human psychology to an understanding of the experience of psychotherapy applied in common clinical circumstances.” — Drew Pinsky, MD, Internist/Addictionologist and Host of Dr. Drew on HLN
