The Loving Brain – a free interview series by Dr. Rick Hanson

Dr. Rick Hanson is a neuropsychologist and is offering a free video interview series -  The Loving brain , he is offering through en*theos beginning July 15.

He will talk with major experts on relationships, including (in order) 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. Then I’ll do a wrap-up focused on practical takeaways.

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 free offered interviews are full of warmth and down-to-earth practical help. You can 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.

The topics we’ll cover 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
