  • Understanding the YES Brain

  • Exploring Our Inner Defense Mechanisms: The Fantasy Bond and Inner Critical Voice

  • The Importance of Sexual Health

  • The YES Brain in the Bedroom

Crockett teaches the core interpersonal neurobiology concept that we all exist on a spectrum from low integration to high integration and aim for the SWEET SPOT.  If we have too much differentiation, we’re stuck in rigid apathy, or if we have too much linkage, we’re stuck in codependency, over-valuing others’ feelings. By linking too much, too soon, we ignore our own feelings and create a pattern of self-neglect in interpersonal relating. In the below chart, too much differentiation is represented by far left and too much linkage is the far right:

She also teaches WHY some of us seem to be able to achieve higher states of integration whereas others seem more stuck. She explains using Firestone’s theory of the Fantasy Bond and how we exist on a spectrum from inwardness (meaning highly defended) to outwardness. **FREE TIP inwardness to outwardness chart and Fantasy Bond HANDOUT.
