Eagle Eye is hosting a Talk and Discussion with Lisa M. Shulman MD about the brain and loss. After the talk a discussion will open up and you are free to share your own personal stories in a safe and compassionate environment. This event is free and open to the public.
In Before and After Loss, neurologist Dr. Lisa M. Shulman describes a personal story of loss and her journey to understand the science behind the mind-altering experience of grief. Part memoir, part creative nonfiction, part account of scientific discovery, this moving book combines Shulman's perspectives as an expert in brain science and a keen observer of behavior with her experience as a clinician, a caregiver, and a widow. Drawing on the latest studies about grief and its effects, she explains what scientists know about how the mind, brain, and body respond and heal following traumatic loss. She also traces the interface between the experience of profound loss and the search for emotional restoration.
Combining the science of emotional trauma with concrete psychological techniques— including dream interpretation, journaling, mindfulness exercises, and meditation—Shulman's frank and empathetic account will help readers regain their emotional balance by navigating the passage from profound sorrow to healing and growth.

In Before and After Loss: A Neurologist’s Perspective on Loss, Grief and Our Brain, Dr. Shulman builds on her experience as a neurologist to describe a personal story of loss and her journey to understand the science behind the mind-altering experience of grief. Part memoir, part scientific discovery, this moving book combines her perspective as an expert in brain science with her experience as a clinician, a caregiver, and a widow. Shedding light on the disconnect between the conventional wisdom about loss and emerging knowledge of emotional trauma as the cause of brain dysfunction, Dr. Shulman explores not only the experience but also the science of loss.
