4.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading for psychotherapists, September 6, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have enjoyed reading this and other books by Allan Schore. What makes this book different from his other books is that there are chapters that are written by other experts that resonate same message.
One gathers that psychotherapy is an art but it is based on the solid knowledge base of neurobiology. Most readers would not have any problem in understanding that a psychotherapist will benefit from the science and can translate it into his/her practice. The reverse ,i.e that art can be converted into physiological and neurobiological functions is a complex tenet. This is what I think the book tried to do and mostly succeeded. As a psychotherapist, I would have liked clinical examples. Also, there are some repetitious ideas that can be challenging to ignore. One thing is clear, that bringing the patient's past into present and then psychotherapist interpreting it from the moment of meeting is an exciting concept.
