5.0 étoiles sur 5Merging Neuroscience and Psychotherapy20 décembre 2002
Par Jim Hedstrom - Publié sur Amazon.com
Dr. Cozolino has effectively addressed the fragmentation of physiological and psychological approaches to clinical disorders, laying a groundwork for the inevitable meshing of these two broad approaches to dealing with human problems. Increasingly our growing understanding of brain physiology provides opportunities to look for psychological correlates to various brain states. Covering the spectrum of psychological disciplines and relating them to physiological research, he demonstrates cases where a two-pronged therapy makes sense. His book is interspersed with actual case history examples from his practice, and fascinating contemporary neuroscience research. Whereas there is an interesting summary of brain physiology and a broad view of research, the book is clearly written, nicely organized and absorbing in its coverage. Recommended for those who want a view of where treatment of psychopathology is headed, balancing and integrating the psyche and soma.

5.0 étoiles sur 5An outstanding piece of synthesis. Buy it.21 novembre 2005
Par John Harpur - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book is simply a masterpiece in presenting neuroscience relevant to the both researchers in braod areas of psychological science and therapists. The presentation of brain specific information is assured, clear and reasonably well referenced. The book always connects brain regions with manifested behaviours and psychological symptoms. There is so much clarity in the text that it really deserves a very wide audience way beyond what its title suggests. The book embraces aspects of affective and evolutionary neuroscience, ties them to human consciousness development and identifies specific brain developments that cause us to be who we are. The piece of the development of the parietal lobes is one of the best I have ever read. The author has a gift for communication, and this is so rare in neuroscience books that the stands proud of the rest. The tripartite brian, psychology and psycotherapeutic connections are presented with out propagandising one at the expense of the other. There is a degree of good quality speculation in the book from time to time which could set its own research agenda. I will conclude by saying that do give a longer review would runs the risk of spoiling the lively and surprising erudition of the author. Definitely a book worth reading, worth keeping and certainly if you loan it out, you may have trouble getting it back.

5.0 étoiles sur 5explains neuroscience and why it matters to you3 octobre 2002

I've been interested in the many books that have been published recently about consciousness and the brain but until now I haven't found one that is as comprehensive and well written as this one. The basic neuroscience is explained but the author's focus on the relationship of neuroscience to what people experience in therapy, and in their own lives, makes this book different than others out there. The book personalized the scientific information in such a way that I feel I really learned a lot about how psychotherapy works, and how the brain works, and the relationship between the two.

5.0 étoiles sur 5Excellent insightful and integrative book20 juin 2003
Par Thomas Greening - Publié sur Amazon.com
As a psychotherapist opposed to the dominance of the medical model of human problems, yet intrigued by the developments in neuroscience, I welcome this book as an enlighted integration which traces causation in both directions, detailing what Roger Sperry called "top-down" as well as "bottom-up" causation.

4.0 étoiles sur 5Important now - more important in 5 years1 janvier 2003
Par Paal Iversen - Publié sur Amazon.com
"The neuroscience of psychotherapy" will probably be cited for years to come. It is a groundbreaking, good piece of work trying to integrate two traditionally opposing views: psychotherapy and neuroscience. The book is clearly written - mostly. There is also, as Cozolino himself points out, some speculations entangled with the research references. I would personally have wished that Cozolino would use more space to discuss more of the conflicting results in the neuroscientific field. Some places I was stuck with the feeling that this book presented the crosspoints of these fields to simple. However; this does not take ANY credit from Cozolino in writing a solid piece about an extremely important subject, a subject that will be more and more important in the coming years - hand in hand with the neusro-research.
