11 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Mark McDonnell on 26 April 2011
Format: Hardcover
For me this is a land-mark book. Among the many insights to be gained from neuroscience which are presented here, there is much that chimes with the empirical wisdom of all schools of psychotherapy. Cozolino manages to weave together the lessons of experience and observation from his practice with the neuroscience which underpins what is going on in the therapeutic relationship. His book is informative, taking the reader deep into the emerging literature on neuroscience, sometimes moving (in his stories of therapeutic encounters) and always clear and well-written. The thinking is rigorous but the warmth and humanity of the author is also much in evidence and I don't think therapists and trainee therapists (like myself) should be put off by the daunting title. The chapters are well constructed in relatively short, focused sections. Those wishing to follow up with further reading will find 76 pages of references to guide them.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book delivers what I want from it: a way to link ideas of psychotherapy, psychology and neuroscience. It starts with an overview of where psychotherapy is now, and the history behind the different modalities, before going on to the legacy of evolution on our brain and neural networks. Other parts explore how a healthy mind experiences the world, an integrated sense of itself and its social environment, as well as what happens when problems arise. When explained simply, neuroscience has much to offer psychotherapists who are seeking to improve their knowledge about why they are taught certain concepts and techniques. It is also well-researched: the references at the back of the hardback edition run to over 70 pages (the 'meat' of the book is just over 350 pages, so that's a fair ratio). It is similar to Brain-based Therapy with Adults: Evidence-based Treatment for Everyday Practice and A User's Guide to the Brain. In-depth reviews of this book can be seen on Amazon.com.

Format: Hardcover
The second edition is a useful update on a good description of the emerging body of work which seeks to inform psychotherapy with developments from neuroscience. Cozolino's other book on relationships is also well worth consideration. Daniel J. Siegel's work is similar in scope, if sometimes slightly more populist in tone. Both authors are well liked by my undergraduate students in counselling - readable, suffeciently in depth and informative.

Cozolino writes in a scientific but clear understandable way. This is the second book I have read of his, I hope he writes more. He links modern scientific discovery with previous existing psychology theories in readable manner. Suitable for students of psychology and psychotherapy as well as those with an interest in neuroscience.
