Going beyond sucking stones: connection and emergent meaning in life and in therapy

This article draws on the theories of Iain McGilchrist expounded in 'The Master and his Emissary: The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World'. It concerns the modes of attention of the left and right hemispheres of the brain and the consequences of this for our sense of life as meaningful. My chapter argues that the particular hemisphere targeted by different kinds of psychotherapy affects the outcome and degree of transformation possible.

Barbara's chapter is published in this book edited by Rod Tweedy (Routledge, 2021)
