Neuroscience And Family Counseling

It has been known for a long time that our brains develop based on both our genetic makeup and the environment we live in. That means that experiences with our family play a crucial role in our development. Similarly, the way a child’s brain is wired can impact the rest of the family based on how they interact, the way they interpret actions from other’s, and their ability to regulate emotions. Understanding the neurology of each individual allows for better results during family therapy.

Positive Change Is Possible
