Extraordinary Relationships:
A New Way of Thinking About Human Relationships

by Roberta M. Gilbert MD

As my main man Dr. Dan Siegel points out, a human being's reality is made up of brain inputs, mental inputs and relational inputs. Our brain effects our mind and our relationships. Our mind effects our brain and relationships. And our relationships effect our mind and our brain. Nobody explains how relationships do this better than Dr. Murray Bowen, the father of family therapy. Bowen was the first to say that the family, not the individual, is the primary emotional unit. Getting your head around this fact will change your life---your mind, your brain and your relationships. Highly recommended.---MR
