Summary
  • Written by distinguished psychiatrist Dr. Larry Siever and based on his years of leading-edge research at such pioneering institutions as the National Institute of Mental Health and Mount Sinai Medical Center, the book details the ways in which science has attempted to define and treat brain disorders through the ages. It examines the longtime scientific focus on studying the amount of neurotransmitters released (such as the much-publicized dopamine and serotonin) and explains why scientists need to shift their attention to examining the ways in which neurotransmitters work in order to gain a clearer understanding of the brain's dysfunctional mechanisms
  • Groundbreaking in its implications, The New View of Self compellingly demonstrates the ways in which both environmental stresses and inherited tendencies contribute to psychological problems. It effectively silences the long-standing debates over "talk therapies" or "drug therapies," affirming that both types of therapy are needed to resolve mental-health disorders. Examples of Dr. Siever's landmark research and fascinating case studies illuminate the text and highlight the various disorders and their treatments
