The Role of Evolution in our Emotions
Rick Hanson, the best-selling author of Buddha’s Brain, sets the stage for the need to counteract our brain’s inborn, evolutionary tendency to interpret negative experiences as threats to survival. Instead, he offers concrete methods for helping people translate positive experiences—both inside and outside the consulting room—into enduring internal resources that are at the core of therapeutic healing.
Rick is one of several noted clinicians in our upcoming streaming-video series “The Emotion Revolution: Harnessing Mind, Body, and Soul in the Consulting Room” who demonstrate innovative methods for utilizing clients’ direct emotional experience to greatly enhance the effectiveness of psychotherapy.

Rick Hanson, Ph.D., is a neuropsychologist with an interest in the intersection of psychology, neurology, and Buddhism, and an invited presenter at Oxford, Stanford, and the University of California at Berkeley. He’s the author of 15 books, including Buddha’s Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love, and Wisdom.
