Change Your Brain, Change Your Life (PDF Into Paper)
Introduction to the Paperback Edition
Since Change Your Brain, Change Your Life was first published in January 1999, my clinic, the Amen Clinic for Behavioral Medicine, has had an overwhelming response from people in the USA, Canada, and even Europe. We have seen adults, teenagers, and children as young as three years old who suffered with depression, anxiety problems, aggression, attention deficit disorder, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Using the new imaging technology, these patients and their families were able to "see" the underlying brain problems that were driving their emotional and behavioral symptoms. Rather than blame themselves for having a weak character or a "mental illness", they were able to more clearly understand the origins of their struggles and get the right help with more targeted, more effective treatment.
