How Relationships, the Mind, and the Brain Interact to Shape Who We Are
A psychiatric researcher and therapist delivers a poignant lesson on how early attachment experiences impact the neurological structures that shape the quality of our close adult relationships. Referencing both research and his own clinical experience, Siegel describes how four main attachment styles: secure, avoidant, anxious, and disorganized are powerful starting points for understanding a host of relationship dilemmas and problems. This, along with fascinating observations about right- and left-brain thinking, makes this work a captivating resource. Siegel's comfortable delivery is both measured and spontaneous. With the help of an intimate microphone setup that helps the material appeal to the heart as well as the mind, the author's clear and pleasing voice makes these concepts easy to savor and absorb.
