Ann’s Note:

  • The “right brain (hemisphere)” handles relationships throughout our “lifespan” (Schore, 2012, p. 73).


“…the adaptive survival functions of the right hemisphere, the “locus of emotional brain,” are dominant in relational contexts at all stages of the life span, including the intimate context of psychotherapy” (Schore, 2012, p. 73).
