What Freud Didn'’t Know, well-supported by research and groundbreaking in theory, combines neuroscience and psychology to explain how the amygdala region of the brain evolved to unconsciously record, store, and activate emotional memory loops and imagery associated with painful events, especially those of childhood. This book is the first to bring together diverse, post-Freudian discoveries to produce a coherent three-step practice for understanding problematic aspects of the human mind which can be mastered easily, in a clinical or self-help setting. Stokes explores recent breakthroughs, many in marked contrast to FreudÂ's views, which will change how we view psychological and emotional problems and their treatments.
Grounded in current theories about brain circuitry, What Freud Didn'’t Know integrates ideas about mindfulness, habitual thinking, and insight imagery and provides readers with the tools to rescript their personal narratives for psychological well-being. As an alternative approach to treating stress, most types of depression, anxiety, and phobias without prescription drugs, Stokes’s three-step practice can be used to build resiliency and inner peace.
I found this to be an extremely helpful and well written book.
I have utilized Dr. Stokes three-step practice successfully and am feeling much more peace and well-being in my life as a result of these exercises.
I highly recommend this book from having experienced the effectiveness of Dr Stokes 3-step practice.
