Interpersonal Neurobiology

The Theory of Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB)

In the late 1990s, Dr. Dan Siegel, Dr. Allan Schore, and Dr. Lou Cozolino contributed to the creation of Interpersonal Neurobiology,

Interpersonal Neurobiology (INPB) describes how the brain and body and mind are developed and how they function and change in the context of relationships with others throughout life. These pieces of interconnected scientific study are relevant for everything from learning more effectively to resolving conflict or trauma, and for growing one's personal relationships. Understanding the neuroscience that underpins much of what we know about human interaction helps to give a solid basis for understanding each other and improving poor relationships. Essentially, IPNB explores how the brain grows and changes based on relationships.

Studies have shown that conditions that were once considered to be irreversible may actually be able to be transformed in a healthy way. Because the brain grows continuously throughout our lives, the implications for healing are unending.

Understanding development and change with a IPNB lens allows me to better assist families to rebuild and reconnect the links between their brains, bodies and minds. Allowing the family system to grow a healthier emotional and psychological balance.
