About the Course:

Using state-of-the-art brain imaging technology, Dr. Amen has spent the last decade helping thousands of patients understand how the way their brains are wired can affect their thoughts and emotions. He explains which brain systems (structures) are associated with particular problems and offers specific yet simple “brain prescriptions” (cognitive exercises, nutrition, medication, and more) to actually help enhance brain function (rewire the brain) and heal each problem. Vivid before-and-after brain scans of patients successfully treated at the Amen Clinic show how effective the right treatment can be in helping improve performance. 

This course is based on the book, Change Your Brain, Change Your Life: The Breakthrough Program for Conquering Anxiety, Depression, Obsessiveness, Anger, and Impulsiveness created by Amen, Daniel, M.D. in 0.
