Mindful Relationships: Seven Skills for Success – Integrating the science of mind, body and brain


Human existence depends on relationships. Our brains rely on interconnected neural networks to function. Our minds relentlessly encode complex matrices of meaning to make sense of the world. And our physical and psychological development is contingent on the social bonds we share with others.

Mindful Relationships: The Seven Skills for Success integrates the science of mind, body and brain to reveal how stress undermines these relationships, and what we can do about it.

Chronic stress threatens our well being and relationship success by creating systemic dysregulation of the mind, body and brain.

This dysregulation leaves us relying on primal defense strategies like aggression and withdrawal, and inhibits key cognitive-behavioral capacities essential to relationship success such as accurate appraisal, effective coping, and coherent communication.

The inspirational and accessible book introduces the BREATHE model – an evidence-rich approach that synthesizes the science of mind, body and brain to alleviate stress, increase self-awareness, self-regulation, and emotional intelligence, and cultivate resilient social bonds.

These Seven Skills are essential tools for creating and maintaining a healthy, harmonious, and successful relationship with yourself and others.

Filled with sound science, engaging stories and experiential exercises, this book is bound to change the way that you relate to your life and those in it.
