Distinguish between chemical imbalances, brain disorders and disobedience.

Research suggests that more and more of behaviors are caused by the functioning or dysfunction of the brain. However, is it legitimate to blame the brain for behavioral problems? How do I know when the brain is really responsible?

In this book, Edward T. Welch examines brain problems from a scripture perspective. It differentiates between true disorders originating in the brain and those originating in the heart. Understanding this distinction is essential for those who grapple with these issues, but also for pastors, counselors, and friends who want to help those who are experiencing personal struggles or who are struggling to manage their responsibilities. While focusing on some common problems, Dr Welch outlines a whole series of practical steps for dealing with different types of disorders, imbalances, habits or addictions.

Accessible et bien expliqué

Bon livre, utile, pratique et succinct. Pour chacun des trois cas de figure-type (1- uniquement la faute du cerveau; 2- possible faute du cerveau; 3- pas la faute du cerveau), l'auteur présente un principe de base, lequel, selon lui, s'applique à chaque situation. C'est là que le livre tombe un peu court, car il n'y a pas une grande diversité d'exemples, et ceux qui sont présents ressemblent à des "Success Stories" qui ne rendent pas vraiment compte de la complexité du cheminement poursuivi. Mon seul réel regret est que la version originale en anglais a été publiée en 1998, celle en français en 2016 (18 ans plus tard). Pour un livre qui fait beaucoup références aux "recherches actuelles sur le cerveau" et au DSM-4 (remplacé en 2013 par le DSM-5), c'est un peu dommage. Une note dans la description du livre aurait été apprécié. Cela dit, le contenu reste très pertinent quant aux principes exposés.
