Jeffrey Zimmerman, PhD, is Director of Bay Area Family Therapy Training Associates. He was the first to bring interpersonal neurobiology into Narrative Therapy work. He has published extensively, given workshops internationally, and trained numerous therapists in Narrative Therapy. He has been an licensed psychologist for over 35 years.
Would that all therapists write as clearly about theory and practice as Jeff Zimmerman! With an astonishing capacity to travel across the rigors of neurobiology and the complexities of narrative therapy, Neuro-Narrative Therapy offers the missing link between the conscious purpose of a post-structural practice with the emotional currents of the body and attention to this affect. Zimmerman is one of only a few to be counted as a first-generation narrative therapist, so I can assure you he did not write this book to look cool among his peers, since many--including myself--tried to talk him out of it. Neuro-Narrative Therapy has changed my opinion enough to reconsider the relational/emotional body he escorts into therapy. I am utterly thrilled with this contribution and its deft ability to transport narrative practice forward--Stephen Madigan, MSW, MSc, PhD, Director, Vancouver School for Narrative Therapy
