Neil S. Kobrin, Clinical Psychologist

Why he joined Mind Therapy Clinic.

My PhD in Clinical Psychology emphasized family systems and providing family therapy. I was a founding member of the Family Therapy Institute and for more than a decade I focused on working with families that had significant challenges, particularly in the areas of addiction, abuse and dual diagnosis. By joining the staff of the Mind Therapy Clinic I feel as though I am returning to my roots as a clinician.

In ‘Emotion Well-Being,’ Dr. Neil Kobrin provides a very lucid and accessible integration of psychology and mindfulness for the general and professional reader. In his contribution to this conversation, the author includes personal anecdotes and illustrative case examples to show the relevance and intersection of these two perspectives. He makes clear the distinction between ‘our true nature’ and the overlay of experience and culture which hides it and offers mindfulness as the process of recovery of our original condition. This book should get a wide reading from an interested audience.
