The brain is perhaps the most complex thing that has ever existed. It consists of billions of neurons that each carry tens of thousands of electrical signals every day. When one neuron is damaged or killed by some event, whether it’s the influence of drugs or alcohol, stress, or an injury, then the brain adapts and finds a different pathway for the signal to be carried to where it needs to be.
Why Is Even Cutting Edge Brain Technology Not Enough?
While the brains of people do indeed need changing in ways that most traditional medical approaches are not equipped to handle, we at Grey Matters International believe that the there are some other enhancements to the ‘full life system” of a person that need to be taken into account to truly transform their lives. That is, brain change of the most exceptional variety is a necessary but not sufficient condition for change.
So What Is Distinctive About What Grey Matters International Does?
We make sure that there is wisdom in every behavior change approach being offered to people desperately needing help. There are many “half-truths” in the psychological world that for whatever reason have grown into acceptance in our culture. Some of those are:
- Emotional processing is the only way one gets deeply into change
- Medication or therapy are the cornerstones of psychological enhancement
- Neuroscience is the future of everything
The truth is therapy, meds, and neuroscience have some applications to some people some of the time; but given the brain’s error-based way of over-generalizing and not doing a great job discerning “what merely makes sense from what is fully true”, people end up failing more often than not in their change efforts.
