The present perspective on changing behavior is based on cognitive skill-building methods for managing your symptoms.This method does not consider the brain’s habitual neurological network holding the old behavior in place. Recent neurological research shows how the old neurological network must be reconstructed through appropriate neural exercises to create change. Ways of reconstructing the brain’s old habitual landscape will revolutionize our ways for addressing addictions and violent behaviors. This book addresses the resistance of understanding the importance of the physical brain in the process of change.
