Excerpt from Chapter 3, A General Theory of Love
Excerpt from blog post:
Many people will simply have a vague, undefined, general feeling that “therapy just didn’t work for them”, or that “talking didn’t fix them.” They won’t have concrete examples, or tangible stories to point to in order to realize whether their therapy was successful or not.
When thinking about therapy and finding the best therapist for you, personality matters. If you don’t like your therapist as a person, or you get a feeling they don’t quite “get you,” I’d be surprised if you end up having a successful therapy experience. So much of the work depends on the relationship between the therapist and patient. If there is a conflict of personality then the work can be difficult for both patient and therapist.
The Hidden Brain project helps curious people understand the world – and themselves. Using science and storytelling, Hidden Brain reveals the unconscious patterns that drive human behavior, the biases that shape our choices, and the triggers that direct the course of our relationships.
Our audience takes uncommon pleasure in the world of ideas. Why do mild-mannered people turn into fearsome mama and papa bears? Does the way you park your car say something vital about you? Can hidden biases keep people from finding interesting jobs? Hidden Brain has the answers to those questions.
