Louis Cozolino helps clinicians to broaden their thinking and deepen their clinical toolbox through an understanding of neuroscience, brain development, epigenetics, and the role of attachment in brain development and behavior.

The effective therapist must have knowledge of evolution and neuroanatomy, as well as the systems of our brains and how they work together to give rise to who we are, how we thrive, and why we suffer. This book will give clinicians all they need to understand the social brain, the developing brain, the executive brain, consciousness, attachment, trauma, memory, and the latest information about clinical assessment. Key figures and terms of neuroscience, along with numerous case examples, bring the material to life.

Cozolino is one of the most gifted clinical writers on neuroscience, and his long- awaited pocket guide is a must- buy for any clinician working on the cutting edge of treatment.

Reviews for The Pocket Guide to Neuroscience for Clinicians

Few people have Cozolino's clear understanding of the indivisible nature of mind, brain, and body. Fewer still can make these concepts so accessible, accurately describing the brain as a social organ and humans as complex beings that have been shaped by evolution. Exploring the interface of science and psychotherapy, this book encourages us to know relationship as our natural habitat and to appreciate the conscious and unconscious layers of communication that influence us.--Mary L. Meador, M.D., Board Certified Physician in private practice, Education Chair for Global Association of Interpersonal Neurobiology, Teacher of Science of IBNB, Portland Community College Lou Cozolino's new book is a must-have for all therapists and practitioners who support and care for individuals who carry with them pain and hurt. It is a way of looking through the lens of knowledge about the brain, mind, and body to understand deeply the ways in which relationships offer the resources for healing and transformation. Lou is a thoughtful and kind guide to the neuroscience of clinical work. You will want to read the book again and again. Each time, you will discover something more.--Joe Tucci, PhD, CEO of the Austrailian Childhood Foundation Written with concision, elegance and anecdotal verse, this book combines cutting-edge science and the experience-based insights of a master clinician. Lou Cozolino's guide to applied neuroscience will be a treasured resource for therapists, physicians, and counselors for a long time to come.--Gabor Mate, M.D., author In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction
