Brain Science and Psychological Disorders

New Perspectives on Psychotherapeutic Treatment

F. Scott Kraly (Author)

Overview | Editions
 

Readers with little background in neuroscience and physiology may find themselves at a loss trying to navigate between the knowns and the unknowns when it comes to understanding the intricacies of the brain.

Brain Science and Psychological Disorders demystifies the field of neuroscience, offering a brisk, digestible narrative of how malfunctioning neurons and neurochemicals can result in psychological disorders. In doing so, Kraly explains the roles of pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy in helping to repair various mental health problems, including depression and mania, anxiety, substance abuse, bulimia and anorexia, ADHD, and schizophrenia.

Also available in paperback as The Unwell Brain: Understanding the Psychobiology of Mental Health
