You Are Not Your Brain

Jeffrey M. Schwartz

Overview

'I'm not good enough.' Sound familiar? Many of us seem to live in a constant fight against the negative thoughts of our own brains. But our brains should work for us, not against us. It is possible to change the pathways within your brain that are causing you to feel down.

Published in 2011, You Are Not Your Brain is two psychiatrists' take on how to break bad habits and change unhealthy thinking. Jeffrey Schwartz, M.D., works at the UCLA School of Medicine, focusing mainly on people with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. Rebecca Gladding, a former clinical instructor and attending psychiatrist at UCLA, is the founder of Mindful Wellness Maui.

This book combines the co-authors' research around neuroplasticity to implement a renowned four-step framework for rewiring your brain.
