Brain-Based Therapy with Adults
An insightful and practical guide that looks at the role neuroscience plays as it relates to the evidence-based treatment of adult disorders
Written in an accessible way, Brain-Based Therapy with Adults: Evidence-Based Treatment for Everyday Practice provides a straightforward, integrated approach that looks at what we currently know about the brain and how it impacts and informs treatment interventions. Authors Arden and Linford show how this new kind of therapy takes into account both the uniqueness of each client, as well as the requirements of standardized care under evidence-based practice--and offers mental health professionals advice that they can put into practice immediately.
Relying on research in developmental neurobiology, brain imaging, and evidence-based psychotherapeutic practices, the authors, experts in both neuroscience and evidence-based practice, cover:
* Recent neuroscientific discoveries and how these can be integrated into evidence-based interventions to create uniquely effective treatments
* Detailed background and evidence-based?interventions for many of the most common adult disorders, such as OCD,?panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, and relationship problems
* Tips on helping patients re-regulate such neurodynamically important processes as sleep and the mind-body relationship
Incorporating vignettes that illustrate how to include these new treatments into effective client care, Brain-Based Therapy with Adults: Evidence-Based Treatment for Everyday Practice explains the concept of brain-based therapy in a succinct and easy-to-grasp way, enabling therapists to make practical sense of neuroscience and its application within their everyday practice.
