Editorial Reviews

Review

“In The Brain-Savvy Therapist’s Workbook, Bonnie Badenoch seamlessly integrates principles of neurobiology into the therapy session. By working through clinical examples and exercises, the reader experiences how psychotherapeutic strategies are intertwined with brain structures and the neural processes involved in learning, memory, and visceral feelings. This clearly-written volume will change how therapy is conducted.” (Stephen W. Porges, PhD, Director, Brain-Body Center, Department of Psychiatry, University of Illinois at Chicago, and author of The Polyvagal Theory)

“This book provides wonderfully rich new vistas on the compelling, growing field of interpersonal neurobiology. Therapists and patients will benefit from Badenoch’s powerful narrative thread from neuroscience discoveries to the deepest aspects of personal relationships. This workbook is a must-read.” (Marco Iacoboni, neuroscientist, University of California at Los Angeles, and author of Mirroring People: The Science of Empathy and How We Connect with Others)

By Rebecca of Amazon HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on April 30, 2011
Format: Paperback
If you are going to read this book and use it as a workbook I'd suggest you maybe read Being a Brain-Wise Therapist: A Practical Guide to Interpersonal Neurobiology (Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology) first to really find out what a Brain-Wise Therapist is and how the brain works. This book has a short section on "Brain Basics" which is somewhat helpful. There is a discussion on neuroplasticity that explains how you can change the brain. This book is also filled with stories about the author's patients and a useful section on how to create a safe space for patients at your office. This book will work best for therapists who like writing in a journal. There are many exercises to complete and a lot of contemplation over the concepts.

If you've got to this point ... however you've managed to arrive here ... reading this message and you're puzzling as to whether or wither or how you should proceed ... Here is my suggestion:

Go to GoogleTechTalks series and listen to Dr Daniel J. Siegel, MD present his lessons contained within his book 'Mindsight - the New Science of Personal Transformation'
[...] Badenoch and Siegel sprout from the same roots.

At Googletech lecture you will observe the presentation of the New Science discoveries as to 'what is consciousness' and where does it come from and what happens when you come to realize that you are suffering ... and haven't a clue as to what to do.

Having seen that and now having caught a glimpse of his message ... that you (are probably helping professional looking for effective tools) now have the opportunity acquire Bonnie Badenoch's deeply compassionate presentation of 'Brain Savvy' therapeutic insights, attitudes and methods ... all of which will require you to 'do your own work'. Bon Voyage ... dive in ... the weather is beautiful! The discoveries of 'how things connect' and 'what does it mean' and 'how are we related' All New!
