Banyen's Description: 

This concise, charmingly illustrated book offers an introduction to the evolution and early development of the brain and personality that form the crucial foundation for lifelong learning and growth. Designed for psychologists, psychotherapists, coaches, and child care professionals—as well as social workers and anyone else who wants to know more about the biological roots of emotion and relationship—this book is the most accessible primer on developmental neuropsychology available, combining easy-to-understand text with light-hearted illustrations. Covering topics such as the autonomic nervous system, neuroaffective development, the role of the prefontal cortex, and the zone of proximal development, The Neuroaffective Picture Book is a unique and useful tool for learning about emotions, social skills, and self-regulation.

Neuroscientists estimate that our interactions with others are nonverbal and to a surprising degree unconscious, while most of our conscious focus in everyday life, and in teaching and psychotherapy approaches, is verbal… Curiosity and playfulness are central to learning, so I hope that Kim Hagen and Jakob Worre Foged’s light-hearted illustrations can help re-establish some of the lost connections between your verbal and nonverbal consciousness.

“The practice of psychotherapy is greatly enhanced by the understanding of developmental growth of babies, toddlers, and children. Marianne Bentzen is one of the truly original thinkers in this field. Bentzen brings these important concepts into an accessible, playful, and delightful form.” —Peter Levine, author of Waking the Tiger: Healing Trauma
