After completing this course, you will be able to:
- Understand how the brain’s need to manage the body’s resources sheds light on such diverse phenomenon as emotion, attachment, depression, and defenses.
- Outline how emotions are constructed by unconscious predictions constantly run by our brain to explain both the outer and inner world, and how those predictions shift our bodily state.
- Explain how Social Baseline Theory can serve as a bridge between the theory of constructed emotion and attachment theory, giving us a new lense to view the importance of attachment security.
- Describe the importance of resource in allowing us to come into our full complexity as human beings.
NEW BRAIN SCIENCE: A NOVEL LOOK AT HOW ATTACHMENT REGULATES THE BRAIN AND BODY THROUGH RESOURCE
