The Loving Brain with Rick Hanson, Ph.D. and Guests

Rick HansonMy friend and colleague, Rick Hanson, Ph.D. (author of Buddha’s Brain) is offering a free video interview series – The Loving Brain – beginning July 15. Rick talks with major experts on relationships, including Harville Hendrix, Ph.D. and Helen Hunt, Ph.D., Tara Brach, Ph.D., Paul Gilbert, Ph.D., Geneen Roth, Paul Zak, Ph.D., Sara Gottfried, M.D., and Christine Carter, Ph.D.

Starting July 15, for eight Mondays a new interview will be available and then archived so you can watch it any time you want, or go back and see interviews that you missed. These freely offered interviews are full of warmth and down-to-earth practical help. You can watch them streaming or download them – including just the audio portion if you want – to your computer to access any time you like.
This series explores useful ideas and tools that people can use in their relationships with friends, family, romantic partners, children, or co-workers – including in difficult situations. What happens in their relationships is the most important factor in long-term physical and mental health for most people, and this series is dedicated to providing effective help.
Topics covered include:
•  How experiences in childhood affect us today in our relationships
•  Ways to grow caring and self-compassion
•  Freeing oneself from unfair self-criticism
•  The neurochemistry of love, and how to work with it
•  How hormones and imbalances affect relationships
•  Improving relationships with children and co-parents
•  How relationships can change the brain for the better
The guests are wonderful authorities in their fields, and they respond openly to some very personal questions.

Rick and his guests have an uncommon combination of intellect and accomplishment along with wisdom and heart. I think you’ll really like what they have to say.
