I am wholly enthusiastic about teaching the skill of reframing. It is to share a skill that constructionist oriented therapists have long employed, not only with therapeutic clients but to the world at large...including three-year olds. However, to credit this development to neuroscience is wholly inappropriate. The skill was developed long before the romance with brain determination, and can be sustained without any recourse to neurology.


I am a bit confused. Who is crediting reframing to neuroscience? There is little that brain science has verified or discovered that was not known before, often for centuries. Nothing new, but sometimes a new way of seeing it because of the advances in technology.

Wow, Zemanta actually found a post that was right on target for an article on the power of reframing for individuals with executive functioning dysregulation that I am drafting for ADDandSoMuchMore.com. Keep an eye out for pings (or however these blog platforms notify you that you've been referenced and linked). And thanks!

As a pioneer and developer of Brain-Based Coaching technique, now that I've found you, I'll be back to mine your site many times, I'm sure (intellectualy property STRICTLY respected!) LOVE the name of your blog, btw.

If you've got time to guest post, I'd love to feature either or both of you - and I'd be happy to return the favor if/when it seems appropriate.
