Description: After reading the book, please join us for an interactive, engaging discussion of Brain Rules by John Medina. -- "If workplaces had nap rooms, multitasking was frowned upon, and meetings were held during walks, we'd be vastly more productive. Brain Rules reveals – in plain English – 12 ways our brains truly work."

Also check out brainrules.net for videos and other resources supporting each chapter/concept in the book. Dr. Medina discusses the latest research on brain science in a fun, interesting, and easy to follow manner. This is an easy and fun read, great for the busy holiday months coming up; it is sure to make you laugh and think about the brain in a new way!

**It is highly recommended that you read the book before the meeting and come with some discussion questions and/or thoughts on applying the information to practice. This will help ensure a lively discussion and that members leave with concrete tips on how the information can inform our lives and work.  There will not be a presenter nor will there be books for sale at this event. This is a book club discussion group.

Neuroscience research is rapidly expanding, and many of the exciting new discoveries can be used to improve daily life and work. The aim of ACR Chicago’s new neuroscience book club is to engage practitioners from diverse fields in critical discussions about the latest neuroscience research in order to find creative ways to apply findings to the practice of conflict resolution, social work, psychology, coaching, and life in general. It is expected that members will leave each meeting with practical techniques they can apply for themselves and clients.
