An illustrated, easy-to-read introduction to the evolution and early development of the brain, emotions, and personality

This concise, charmingly illustrated book offers an introduction to the evolution and early development of the brain and personality that form the crucial foundation for lifelong learning and growth. Designed for psychologists, psychotherapists, coaches, and child care professionals--as well as social workers and anyone else who wants to know more about the biological roots of emotion and relationship--this book is the most accessible primer on developmental neuropsychology available, combining easy-to-understand text with light-hearted illustrations. Covering topics such as the autonomic nervous system, neuroaffective development, the role of the prefontal cortex, and the zone of proximal development, The Neuroaffective Picture Book is a unique and useful tool for learning about emotions, social skills, and self-regulation.

About the Author:

Marianne Bentzen is a psychotherapist and trainer who provides trainings throughout Europe, specializing in the ways that neuroaffective personality development - the maturation processes of brain and personality - can inform treatment and interpersonal process work. In Denmark, she works with psychiatric facilities to improve process and case supervision, and consults for mental health organizations internationally. For the past twenty years she has worked closely with psychologist Susan Hart to develop the frameworks of Neuroaffective Developmental Psychology, Personality Development, and Psychotherapy. She is a co-founder of Bodynamic Analysis, she has worked with Peter Levine (Somatic Experiencing) for decades, and she has trained with many other leading figures in the field of body psychotherapy, including Ron Kurtz (Hakomi), Albert Pesso (Psychomotor Training) and David Boadella (Biosynthesis). Bentzen also studies mindfulness and meditation practices under Jes Bertelsen. Her work on neuroaffective development and psychotherapy has been published widely in several languages.
