Rick Hanson on Working with the Brain for Lasting Change
People seek us out because they want change.
Some clients 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, their brain must change too. And memory systems have to be harnessed to positive states in order for that change to become permanent.
In this quick video, Rick Hanson does a brilliant job of explaining how you can harness the brain’s ability to lay new neural pathways and become more effective in helping your clients make the lasting changes they seek.
Don’t miss this one. Rick’s explanation is clear, compelling and, best of all, actionable.
