Words Can Change Your Brain

book cover Words can change your brain : 12 conversation strategies to build trust, resolve conflict, and increase intimacy

In a media-saturated society it is easy to forget that video and television images and even the words we hear, read and then choose to use can and do impact the very essence of our lives.  How we process and understand information (media literacy) and then communicate information is a powerful force and vital to our contentment and ability to function as positive forces at home, work and in the community. Andrew Newbeg and Mark Waldman's new book Words can change your brain : 12 conversation strategies to build trust, resolve conflict, and increase intimacy provide a strategy they call Compassionate Communication.  You will quickly learn how to be more effective in your communications and how to use strategic steps to overcome conflicts and to promote more collaborative environments.  So, if you have ever been hurt by someone else's words or comments you already understand the damage that words can do to another person's psyche and self-esteem and even their physical health.  Armed with "Words can change your brain" you will be well on your way to improving your own communications as well as those of persons around you.  After having borrowed this book from London Public Library I became so captivated by it that I have now purchased my own copy.  You just might do the same.
