Synopsis

A very interesting book that combines knowledge of the brain with knowledge of psychology and psychotherapy. — Cédric Wautier, RTBF

Anxiety, fear, stress, conflict, impulsiveness, anger, depression, lack of self-confidence and more are all mechanisms that the brain puts into place over the course of our lives without our realizing it.

To ease those feelings, we need to master our brains by understanding how they work and learning to influence them. That’s what Anne-Hélène Clair, PhD. in neuroscience, and Vincent Trybou, psychologist and psychotherapist, propose to teach us in this book. Pairing theory and practice to offer us an efficient toolbox that will empower us to transform our harmful behavior, calm our toxic emotions, and deconstruct our negative thoughts.

Not just for scientists, this book makes recent advances in knowledge about the brain accessible to everyone, as well as showing us how to apply them concretely to re-educating our neurons in our daily lives. Unlike personal-development books, this book isn’t about a single “miracle” method, but instead borrows tools from a range of theories that have been confirmed by neuroscience, choosing the ones that are most applicable in different real-life situations.

Working on yourself starts here: Be Your Own Shrink and free yourself from your chains.
