Description: How to rewire your brain to improve virtually every aspect of your life-based on the latest research in neuroscience and psychology on neuroplasticity and evidence-based practices Not long ago, it was thought that the brain you were born with was the brain you would die with, and that the brain cells you had at birth were the most you would ever possess. Your brain was thought to be hardwired to function in predetermined ways. It turns out that's not true. Your brain is not hardwired, it's softwired by experience. This book shows you how you can rewire parts of the brain to feel more positive about your life, remain calm during stressful times, and improve your social relationships. Written by a leader in the field of Brain-Based Therapy, it teaches you how to activate the parts of your brain that have been underactivated and calm down those areas that have been hyperactivated so that you feel positive about your life and remain calm during stressful times. You will also learn to improve your memory, boost your mood, have better relationships, and get a good night sleep. Reveals how cutting-edge developments in neuroscience, and evidence-based practices can be used to improve your everyday life Other titles by Dr. Arden include: Brain-Based Therapy-Adult, Brain-Based Therapy-Child, Improving Your Memory For Dummies and Heal Your Anxiety Workbook Dr. Arden is a leader in integrating the new developments in neuroscience with psychotherapy and Director of Training in Mental Health for Kaiser Permanente for the Northern California Region Explaining exciting new developments in neuroscience and their applications to daily living, Rewire Your Brain will guide you through the process of changing your brain so you can change your life and be free of self-imposed limitations.

Review: I bought the book because I am fascinated about the brain. I am particularly interested in learning how the brain works and how we can make the most of our potential. What I most like about the book is its sense of hopefulness, The brain has the ability to reorganise itself throught life which means that you can establish new neural connections at any given time just by changing your behaviour. This is something called neuroplasticity.You can influence directly on how you feel or you can even change certain personality traits by modifying the way you act. It is a question of stimulating different parts of your brain that are not active. For example, if you are feeling really low, it means that your right frontal lobe is active and it promotes passivity and negative emotion so you need to shift left and stimulate your left frontal lobe which promotes positive feelings and taking action, how? by keeping yourself active, even if this is what you least feel like doing, but you should try hard to do something, you can go for a run, play the guitar, cook a new recipe, etc. taking action influences directly on your brain.The more you are in a particular mood, the more you'll tend to be in that mood. This is just one small example. The book is well written, clear, well organized and engaging from page 1, It is very interesting and useful. I think this book is a must, I would recommend it to everybody interested in making the most of their potential. The brain is a very powerful tool, we should all learn how to keep it in good shape to help ourselves and to help others.

Review: I guess the subtitle of this book gives its main thrust away - 'Think your way to a better life', think is the key word. It's well written with an excellent looking set of references, it takes account of the latest science and neuroscience and it has a little set of things you should do rounded up under the acronym FEED - focus, effort, effortless, determination. It's very persuasive but basically it's a kind of CBT approach and I don't think anyone with serious problems would be able to follow the recommendations through by themselves without support. Having the reserves to make an effort to change and being determined are things the average depressed person would love to be able to do but probably can't muster by themselves. I always wonder about the paragons who get quoted in the anecdotes in books like this and about the ones who fell by the wayside! I also felt that this book was very American in approach. Having been to the States a few times and talked to a lot of Americans, I do like their positive approach and I often end up depressed by English cynicism and negativity, I suppose I'm being negative here but I have my doubts that the synthesis of this book is quite right this side of the Atlantic. I think a few more interactive exercises might have helped, I see he does have a website which offers some online courses and cds. So I ended up a bit disappointed, a nice read but it's not going to change anything for the really depressed or traumatised and it can be criticised just like all CBT approaches for pushing away looking at the underlying reason for the depression or anxiety etc. If those terrified of public speaking, for instance, are just told to do more public speaking along with a few techniques for calming down, well for some that will work but for others it might just lead to so much stress that they'll end up with a serious breakdown further along the line.

    Description: Do you ever wonder what is happening inside your brain when you feel anxious, panicked, and worried? In Rewire Your Anxious Brain, psychologist Catherine Pittman and author Elizabeth Karle offer a unique, evidence-based solution to overcoming anxiety based in cutting-edge neuroscience and research. In the book, you will learn how the amygdala and cortex (both important parts of the brain) are essential players in the neuropsychology of anxiety. The amygdala acts as a primal response, and oftentimes, when this part of the brain processes fear, you may not even understand why you are afraid. By comparison, the cortex is the center of worry. That is obsessing, ruminating, and dwelling on things that may or may not happen. In the book, Pittman and Karle make it simple by offering specific examples of how to manage fear by tapping into both of these pathways in the brain. As you read, you'll gain a greater understanding how anxiety is created in the brain, and as a result, you will feel empowered and motivated to overcome it. The brain is a powerful tool, and the more you work to change the way you respond to fear, the more resilient you will become. Using the practical self-assessments and proven-effective techniques in this book, you will learn to literally rewire the brain processes that lie at the root of your fears.
