The Power of a Joyful Connection

Recent advances in neuroscience are demonstrating the relational nature of the brain, and the essential role that joy plays in healthy development of the infant and adult brain. These advances describe the effects of addiction on the brain as well as the foundational role that joy plays in recovery.

The experience of joy in the context of relationships powerfully shapes the ways in which the brain is organized and structured. Joy provides the foundation the brain needs to learn how to regulate emotions, pain, pleasure and essential neurotransmitters effectively.  Joy is also needed for the brain to develop secure attachments with others throughout life. Joy is the foundation for healthy relationships, emotional regulation and prevention.

Discover why “Addiction is not a spectator sport; eventually the whole family gets to play.” Coaches, counselors, teachers, other helping professionals and even family members will learn to view the family affected by addiction as a whole unit with useless strategies trying to cope with the distress and pain of living with active addiction.

Understanding “where we came from” often holds the promise of positive change and recovered possibilities..
