Change Your Brain, Transform Relationships

1 Comment

What if you could change the negative thoughts and behaviors that have been detrimental to healthy relationships in the past? Have you ever had feelings of being blamed, unappreciated, rejected or even un-loved in a past or current relationship? Imagine what would happen if you were able to “rewire” your brain and eliminate your negative feelings and replace them with positive feelings that make you feel  accepted, appreciated valued, loved and successful.

On this episode of The Smart Divorce, recorded at The Family Support Expo in Toronto, co-founder of NEXT Integrative Mind Sciences, David Folk joins us to discuss the potential to changing our brain and transform relationships. (Neuroplasticity)

David’s NEXT program guides students through a series of exercises that teach you to utilize your brain’s own natural plasticity by creating new and lasting patterns of behavior.  Armed with new abilities for emotional behavioral regulation, graduates of the couples and families program consistently report radical improvements to their relationships compared to when they began the program.

Learn how developments in neuroscience can benefit your life in this exciting program.  For more information on David Folk and the NEXT program, visit: www.The NextProgram.com.

Deborah Moskovitch went through a seven-year battle that nearly overwhelmed her emotionally and financially. Now she is using her experience, as well as insights that she has garnered from top divorce lawyers, financial advisers, counselors and other experts to help people get a “smart divorce,” as they move through life post-divorce and to advise them on how to position themselves for a better life post-divorce. She is acting as a divorce consultant, helping people choose their lawyers, strategize their approach to divorce, and deal with the negative emotions that can make divorce worse than it has to be. Her goal is to help people manage the divorce process in a healthier, less painful way.

One thought on “Change Your Brain, Transform Relationships

  1. I would like to begin a campaign to stop labeling emotions as “negative” or “positive.” There is evidence that these labels are creating more problems than they are solving: states of feeling becoming stigmatized and, thus, discouraged.
    Evidence is available that demonstrates the value of really feeling emotions as opposed to stifling them because they’re “bad.” Can we imagine our children self-censoring? Who would that benefit?
    “Oh, I’m scared….angry….depressed….I shouldn’t feel that way; it’s negative.” I don’t want me or my kids, or anyone’s kids, going that route.
