Description: After reading the book, please join us for an interactive, engaging discussion of The Brain's Way of Healing by Norman Doidge, a leader in the neuroscience field.

Book description: "They thought that the brain was too sophisticated for its own good. That during evolution it became so complex that it lost the ability to repair itself and 

to restore lost functions or to preserve itself. They were wrong. Because it turns out that its very sophistication can be the source of a unique kind of healing… The brain’s way of healing…"

**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.
