Product description

Review

" "Life Before Birth" is a manifesto that provides a robust argument for increasing attention to the neuro-mental lives of fetuses and infants, and the widespread ramifications on mental health if we do not. Jaak Panksepp, PhD, Bailey Endowed Chair of Animal Well Being Science, Washington State University, and author, " Affective Neuroscience: The Foundations of Human and Animal Emotions"

" "Life Before Birth" is a valuable guide to creating healthier babies. Paula Thomson, PsyD, associate professor, California State University, and professor emeritus, York University""

" An expansive analysis! This book attempts to explain the impact of critical developmental windows in the past, implores us to improve the lives of pregnant women in the present, and has implications for understanding our children, ourselves, and our collective future. K.J.S. Anand, MBBS, DPhil, FAACP, FCCM, FRCPCH, professor of pediatrics, anesthesiology, anatomy, and neurobiology, Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare System""

" Dr. Janov has crafted a compelling and prophetic opus that could rightly dictate PhD theses topics for decades to come. Ed Park, MD, MPH, founder, Recharge Biomedical Clinic""

" Lucidly, the pioneer of primal therapy provides the scientific rationale for treatments that take us through our original, nonverbal memoriesto essential depths of experience that the superficial cognitive-behavioral modalities currently in fashion cannot possibly touch, let alone transform. Gabor Mate, MD, author, " In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction"

"" A ""thrilling journey of discovery . . . Janov writes like no one else on the human mindengaging, brilliant, passionate, and honest. He is the best writer today on what makes us humanhe shows us how the mind works, how it goes wrong, and how to put it right. Paul Thompson, PhD, professor of neurology, UCLA School of Medicine """

"" Dr. Janov s essential insightthat our earliest experiences strongly influence later well-beingis no longer in doubt. Thanks to advances in neuroscience, immunology, and epigenetics, we can now see some of the mechanisms of action at the heart of these developmental processes. His long-held belief that the brain, human development, and psychological well-being need to be studied in the context of evolutionfrom the brain stem upnow lies at the heart of the integration of neuroscience and psychotherapy. Lou Cozolino, PsyD, professor of psychology, Pepperdine University """
