Giveaway This Week!: This week we will be giving away 2 copies of The Psychotherapist’s Essential Guide To The Brain! See below.
It’s question time again and today we are addressing 2 questions from our listeners:
  1. Bob Shebib – What specific neurological and biological changes occur for the client as a result of building a relationship with the therapist? Oxytocin? Dopamine? Reduction of stress hormones?
  2. Hillary – when someone experiences trauma in early development there is a “shift” in the nervous system. What does the shift look like in adulthood and is it changeable with secure attachment
