A Roadmap to Healing, Resiliency and Well-Being
The explosion of new information about the human brain must be put into application to improve the effectiveness of our treatment approaches. Anyone interested in helping those with mental, emotional and behavioral difficulties must become knowledgeable about how the brain works. Neurological Reparative Therapy provides in one volume much of what a helper needs to know to provide positive brain development, social success through attachment and how to bounce back after adversity. NRT is a treatment model that respects the uniqueness and experience of every helper and provides a roadmap for the healing journey but does not tell the helper what techniques must be used. Research has consistently shown that the one element of effective treatment that overshadows evidence based practices is the relationship between the helper and the client. Dr. Ziegler has explored the topics of trauma, attachment, brain development and resilience in his previous books and now integrates all of these essential elements into a model or positive change. The reader will receive confirmation of the effective approaches already being utilized, as well as new ways to understand the journey of positive brain change to promote life-long health of mind, body and spirit. Neurological Reparative Therapy is a roadmap that should be with any helper before starting the complex journey promoting positive brain change.
