Why Learning About Brain is Important

In my sessions, whenever appropriate, I like to talk with clients about their brains and how we can use its powers to heal and grow. In fact, teaching adults and children as young as 4 about their brain and how it works has many benefits:

  1. It promotes growth mindset instead of fixed mindset.
  2. It gives hope that things can change, even when we feel completely hopeless.
  3. It helps grow emotional intelligence
  4. It brings order when all we see is chaos.
  5. It empowers us to make decisions and be bosses of our lives.
  6. It gives common, nonjudgmental language to describe behaviour problems.
