We are hardwired to connect with one another, and we connect through our emotions. Our brains, bodies, and minds are inseparable from the emotions that animate them. Normal human development relies on the cultivation of relationships with others to form and nurture the self-regulatory circuits that enable emotion to enrich, rather than enslave, our lives. And just as emotionally traumatic events can tear apart the fabric of family and psyche, the emotions can become powerful catalysts for the transformations that are at the heart of the healing process. In this book, the latest addition to the Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology, leading neuroscientists, developmental psychologists, therapy researchers, and clinicians illuminate how to regulate emotion in a healthy way. A variety of emotions, both positive and negative, are examined in detail, drawing on both research and clinical observations. The role of emotion in bodily regulation, dyadic connection, marital communication, play, well-being, health, creativity, and social engagement is explored. The Healing Power of Emotion offers fresh, exciting, original, and groundbreaking work from the leading figures studying and working with emotion today. Contributors include: Jaak Panksepp, Stephen W. Porges, Colwyn Trevarthen, Ed Tronick, Allan N. Schore, Daniel J. Siegel, Diana Fosha, Pat Ogden, Marion F. Solomon, Susan Johnson, and Dan Hughes.

Review quote

"This book-the fruit of a dialogue among eminent neuroscientists, clinicians, attachment researchers, and body workers-achieves a level of integration among these various disciplines that has not been seen before. A magisterial achievement!" -- Bessel van der Kolk, MD, The Trauma Center, Boston, MA "Imagine that some of most brilliant, neuroscientific contributors to our understanding of emotion and brain development, teamed up with some of the most knowledgeable, creative psychotherapists alive, and really listened to, and learned to understand each other's work. The result is this essential, palpably exciting, at times profound volume, which shows how to use brain-based insights, and inevitable emotions themselves, to foster mental healing." -- Norman Doidge, MD, author, The Brain That Changes Itself "A masterful panoramic view of emotion. This is an important and superbly done book, especially strong in balancing the clinical with the scientific." -- Daniel N. Stern, MD, Honorary Professor of Psychology, University of Geneva, author, The Present Moment in Psychotherapy and Everyday Life "It is gratifying to see this important new volume direct a long-overdue spotlight on the essential element of emotional change in psychotherapy. This volume provides information on neurophysiology, phenomenology, and interactive dynamics that can benefit clinicians of all orientations." -- Francine Shapiro, PhD, Senior Research Fellow, Mental Research Institute, Palo Alto, California, and Executive Director, the EMDR Institute, Watsonville, CA
