Why therapy works - by louis cozolino
We found that this book explains in a easy-to-handle scientific way how and why therapy works. Louis Cozolino PhD works, writes and lectures in the arenas of neuroscience, mental health and the therapeutic process. He has a special interest in dysfunctional families and childhood trauma. This book can help anyone interested in the counselling process to better understand the brain's process and how therapy can support positive change and well-being.
There are around 100,000 Ted and Tedx Talks available and unsurprisingly they cover a whole range of subjects. Some of the most inspirational involve people who have overcome adversity and share their experience of human difficulty. We think even a 3 minute TedTalk can enhance your mood.
