About this item

Drawing on decades of experience and research, Louis Cozolino offers a clear, concise, and evidence-based explanation of why psychotherapy is an effective source of healing and positive change.The story of why psychotherapy works begins with the brain. We must understand how it evolved to learn, unlearn, and relearn. We have to understand the power of human relationships to regulate anxiety and stimulate learning, and that the way we interact with the world physically, emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually has been woven into our social brains. Finally, we must understand the role of stories and our ability to edit our own stories to change the patterns of our lives for the better.This is not the story of one form of therapy; it is the underlying story of all therapies that have the power to create meaningful change, and where that power comes from.
