Our Bottom Line Responsibility as Therapists

Rick Hanson on Working with the Brain for Lasting Change

People seek us out because they want change.

Some want to be less anxious or less depressed, some want to be better able to control themselves in interactions with other people, and  others seek greater self-knowledge or an open-ended existential exploration.

For someone to change, the brain must change too and memory systems have to be harnessed to positive states in order for permanent change to occur.

In this quick clip, Rick Hanson does a brilliant job of explaining just how essential understanding neuroscience is if we are to be effective in helping our clients make the lasting changes they seek. Rick is a master at making his explanations clear, compelling and, best of all, actionable.

This clip is taken from our Why Brain Science Matters Webcast series with Dan Siegel, Louann Brizendine, Michael Gelb, Norman Doidge, Rick Hanson, and Stephen Porges. For 2 weeks only, we’re making this 6-session Webcast series available for only $99. It’s part of our Mind-Body-Soul Webcast Special.
