Reviews:

“In language that can be understood by all levels of psychologist, from those in graduate programs up through experienced clinicians, How People Change offers practical theories for accomplishing psychological change. . . . [A] great way to succinctly gather new perspectives on how to approach the process of change in therapy.”

Journal of Contemporary Psychotherapy

 

“This is an excellent book not only for therapists, but also for those who study the philosophy of mind, for those looking at policy in societal change, insurance companies, and those who teach and practice body work such as yoga, tai chi, qigong, dance therapy, and more. . . . [I]t has been refreshing to read the different ways that extremely competent therapists work and in a variety of ways. . . . This book supports the importance of paying attention to the therapeutic relationship, to what clients want, and their own theory of how change occurs for them (and your ability to work with that). This book is well worth your time. I continue to refer to it.”

Psych Central

 

“This masterful collection of essays is rich with practical insights for psychotherapists, coaches, and really anyone who helps others change for the better. Far-reaching, lucid, full of heart, and highly recommended.”

Rick Hanson, PhD, author of Buddha’s Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love, and Wisdom

 

“Each of the chapters—or better yet, each of the authors—in this book is authentic in the way that Bromberg uses in his chapter. Each therapist, and each is a master at doing therapy, expresses their individual struggle with the question of how change in therapy happens, and how to make meaning out of a change process that can only be apprehended through experience and eludes colonization by words. And yet something special goes on as you read the words. It will be a realization of authenticity between you and the writer, an expanding dyadic experience that is emergent and surpasses the limitations of language and symbols. It is a dyadic state bringing you a new clarity of expanding understanding of what you always knew but didn’t know you knew.”

Ed Tronick, PhD, Distinguished University Professor of Psychology, University of Massachusetts, Boston, Director, Child Development Unit


Description:

Drawing on cutting-edge neuroscience to understand psychotherapeutic change.

Growth and change are at the heart of all successful psychotherapy. Regardless of one’s clinical orientation or style, psychotherapy is an emerging process that is created moment by moment, between client and therapist.

How People Change explores the complexities of attachment, the brain, mind, and body as they aid change during psychotherapy. Research is presented about the properties of healing relationships and communication strategies that facilitate change in the social brain. Contributions by Philip M. Bromberg, Louis Cozolino and Vanessa Davis, Margaret Wilkinson, Pat Ogden, Peter A. Levine, Russell Meares, Dan Hughes, Martha Stark, Stan Tatkin, Marion Solomon, and Daniel J. Siegel and Bonnie Goldstein.
