Many fields have explored the nature of mental life from psychology
to psychiatry, literature to linguistics. Yet no common "framework"
where each of these important perspectives can be honored and
integrated with one another has been created in which a person
seeking their collective wisdom can find answers to some basic
questions, such as, What is the purpose of life? Why are we here?
How do we know things, how are we conscious of ourselves? What is
the mind? What makes a mind healthy or unwell? And, perhaps most
importantly: What is the connection among the mind, the brain, and
our relationships with one another? Our mental lives are profoundly
relational. The interactions we have with one another shape our
mental world. Yet as any neuroscientist will tell you, the mind is
shaped by the firing patterns in the brain. And so how can we
reconcile this tension-that the mind is both embodied and
relational? Interpersonal Neurobiology is a way of thinking across
this apparent conceptual divide. This Pocket Guide to Interpersonal
Neurobiology is designed to aid in your personal and professional
application of the interpersonal neurobiology approach to
developing a healthy mind, an integrated brain, and empathic
relationships. It is also designed to assist you in seeing the
intricate foundations of interpersonal neurobiology as you read
other books in the Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology.
