Jeffrey M. Schwartz, M.D., and Rebecca Gladding, M.D.
#8786. In this highly rated book, two neuroscience experts explain how their 4-step method can help identify negative thoughts and change bad habits for good.
A leading neuroplasticity researcher and the coauthor of several groundbreaking books, Jeffrey M. Schwartz has spent his career studying the human brain. He pioneered the first mindfulness-based treatment program for people suffering from OCD, teaching patients how to achieve long-term relief from their compulsions.
Schwartz and Gladding developed a program that successfully explains how the brain works and why we often feel besieged by overactive brain circuits (i.e., bad habits, social anxieties, etc.). The key to making life changes that you want – to make your brain work for you – is to consciously choose to starve these circuits of focused attention, thereby reducing their influence and strength.
You Are Not Your Brain carefully outlines the authors’ program, showing readers how to identify negative impulses, channel them through the power of focused attention, and ultimately lead more fulfilling and empowered lives.
