The Healing Power of Emotion: Affective Neuroscience, Development and Clinical Practice (Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology)by Diana Fosha
Synopses & Reviews
We are hardwired to connect with one another, and we connect through our emotions. Our brains, bodies, and minds are inseparable from the emotions that animate them. Normal human development relies on the cultivation of relationships with others to form and nurture the self-regulatory circuits that enable emotion to enrich, rather than enslave, our lives. And just as emotionally traumatic events can tear apart the fabric of family and psyche, the emotions can become powerful catalysts for the transformations that are at the heart of the healing process. In this book, the latest addition to the Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology, leading neuroscientists, developmental psychologists, therapy researchers, and clinicians illuminate how to regulate emotion in a healthy way. A variety of emotions, both positive and negative, are examined in detail, drawing on both research and clinical observations. The role of emotion in bodily regulation, dyadic connection, marital communication, play, well-being, health, creativity, and social engagement is explored. offers fresh, exciting, original, and groundbreaking work from the leading figures studying and working with emotion today. Contributors include: Jaak Panksepp, Stephen W. Porges, Colwyn Trevarthen, Ed Tronick, Allan N. Schore, Daniel J. Siegel, Diana Fosha, Pat Ogden, Marion F. Solomon, Susan Johnson, and Dan Hughes.

Fosha (Accelerated Experiential-Dynamic Psychotherapy Institute) et al. compile articles by neuroscientists, developmental psychologists, therapy researchers, and clinicians on how to help patients regulate and use emotion in a healthy way to grow, heal, and learn. They consider emotions and their roles in bodily regulation, dyadic connection, marital communication, play, well-being, health, and social engagement. They discuss the neuroscientific and developmental foundations of an emotion-based, body rooted experiential clinical approach, core emotions and their functions, the role of the autonomic nervous system, development in infants, the role of meaning, the brain and regulation, and various therapies based on emotional experiences.
