The latest groundbreaking, interdisciplinary work from one of our most eloquent and significant writers about emotion and the brain.

An exploration into the adaptive functions of the emotional right brain, which describes not only affect and affect regulation withinminds and brains, but also the communication and interactive regulation of affects between minds and brains. This book offers evidence that emotional interactions reflect right-brain-to-right-brain affective communication. Essential reading for those trying to understand one-person psychology as well as two-person psychology relationships, whether clinical or otherwise.
