Jeffrey Zimmerman, PhD, is Director of Bay Area Family Therapy Training Associates. He was the first to bring interpersonal neurobiology into Narrative Therapy work. He has published extensively, given workshops internationally, and trained numerous therapists in Narrative Therapy. He has been an licensed psychologist for over 35 years.
This book brings disparate fields (Narrative Therapy, Interpersonal
Neurobiology and Affective Neuroscience) together in ways that
significantly moves our field forward. Zimmerman has always been
something of an outsider, pushing the boundaries of the field while
connecting it to current culture (particularly music and video).
This book continues those efforts and moves into entirely new
territory. Read it and it is likely to blow your mind and get you
thinking in ways you may never have considered.--William Madsen,
PhD, Director of the Family-Centered Services Project and author of
Collaborative Therapy with Multi-Stressed Families
Zimmerman's ideas in this book on Neuro-Narrative therapy profoundly influenced my work as a Narrative consultant and coach in the organizational field. These ideas and practices have transformed my way of working with and training of narrative ideas to include significant moments that honor our embodied knowledge and invite affect as a participant in the room with us.--Chene Swart, South African narrative consultant, coach, and author of Re-authoring the World
Zimmerman has done an excellent job of evolving narrative therapy to include interpersonal neurobiology and explaining how he came upon this road. . . . [H]e has created a new story in the context of his experience as a narrative therapist and a self-aware, caring person. Both his heart and his mind shine together in this book.
