Dr. Kirk Bingaman has published his third book
The Power of Neuroplasticity for Pastoral and Spiritual Care (Lexington, 2014). The book focuses on neuroscientific findings, which reveal that through regular contemplative-meditational practice we can learn how to calm the fear and stress regions of the brain. It provides practitioners and clinicians with an understanding of how the findings can be applied to the work of pastoral and spiritual care, as we go about helping clients and congregants to cultivate less anxious and more positive perspectives on life.
