The Pocket Guide to Neuroscience for Clinicians
by Louis Cozolino Author
A crash course on the evolution and development of our brains, focused particularly on attachment, early relationships, memory, and trauma. How do we gain conscious awareness, executive functioning, attunement, communication, and a sense of ourselves in relationships and groups? Chapters on evolution, genetics, and epigenetics cast further light. The focus throughout is on helping therapists, physicians, psychiatrists, and other clinical workers better understand and treat their patients, and the writing is rather technical as such. Lay readers may frequently find themselves reaching for a dictionary. (Also of note for lay readers: for a "pocket guide" this is a hefty book, though compared to epic psychology tomes and the DSM it's downright lightweight.)
