Biomechanics of Human Communication: Neurophysiology, Regulation, and Systems Thinking
The purpose of this book is to create a neurophysiology-based framework for assessing and improving mental health. It introduces measurable and neurobiologically-informed concepts and language to help professionals andorganizations decrease stigma related to mental health and increase awareness of a new paradigm. This new, emerging paradigm moves away from previous language related to mental and psychological health, and moves towards language that focuses on promoting systems resilience and neurological adaptability through measurable neurophysiological mechanisms. It explores human communication patterns through the lens of neurophysiology, systems thinking, the Neurovisceral Integration Model, and attachment frameworks. This book will give people who are in helping professions – coaches, therapists, teachers, first responders – and leaders of all sorts – a new map and vocabulary for understanding mental health in terms of nervous system mechanisms for detectingand creating safety.
- Provides examples of brain maps (quantitative EEGs) related to issues with Signal Flow
- Features illustrations of biomechanical principles of nervous system mechanisms for signal transmission and detection
- A map for using neurophysiology-based language to describe current concepts in psychology, therapy, and mental health.
