    Combining scientific research with insightful literature, The Neuroeducation Toolbox: Practical Translations of Neuroscience in Counseling and Psychotherapy provides students and clinicians with a set of tools for integrating neuroscience into clinical practice. The text emphasizes the application of neuroeducation and highlights how this powerful intervention can reduce client stress, improve outcomes, and increase levels of collaboration between counselors and their clients.

    Opening chapters demonstrate the myriad uses of neuroeducation in practice and explain how to facilitate the neuroeducation process. Readers explore key principles of brain development, learn about brain anatomy and physiology, and develop understanding of the autonomic nervous system. The embodied brain, memory systems, and the social emotional nature of the brain are addressed. The book closes with discussions of the technical applications of neuroscience and the future of neuroeducation. Each chapter features diverse and thought-provoking literature on neuroscience and creative neuroeducation activities written by counselors, psychotherapists, and scholars in the field. Ethical and multicultural considerations are also highlighted in each activity chapter.

    The Neuroeducation Toolbox is an ideal resource for courses in counseling and psychotherapy, especially those that emphasize neuroscience research and neuroeducation. Practicing clinicians will also find the text a valuable addition to their libraries.
