We’ve always known that children's brains change over time. But what about those of adults?
For a long time, scientists believed that the adult brain was fixed – permanent circuitry, permanent pathways, permanent chemical levels.
They don’t believe that anymore....Do you?
common to think people with mental or emotional problems have something deeply
wrong with them.
But when you look closely, you start to see something else: remarkable sensitivity, insight and depth.
Are those signs of a broken person...or someone else?
When any of us are hurting mentally or emotionally, it’s natural to want to do something to make the pain go away.
These direct efforts can provide crucial relief for awhile. Unfortunately, the pain may come back and even get worse over time.
Is there a way to move in a direction of deeper and more lasting relief?
One family was told that their daughter's mental disorder would be something she had to face for the rest of her life. The parents worked to accept the news and slowly let go of their bigger dreams for her future.
This is just what families would need to do, of course, if the research told us that serious mental disorders were always, inevitably life-long conditions. But does it? What if new studies were actually telling a more hopeful story?
