Neuroplasticity, Performativity, and Clergy Wellness : Neighbor Love as Self-Care Hardback
Part of the Emerging Perspectives in Pastoral Theology and Care series
This book invites readers, particularly clergy members, to rethink their understandings of the human person in light of recent developments in neuroscience.
In addition to bringing together religion and neuroscience, it engages narrative theory, exercise physiology, and constructions of wellness to raise crucial questions about human identity and relationality and argue for a model of care that connects self-care and care for/with others.
Furthermore, it claims that human beings are whole, intra/inter-relational, dynamic, plastic, and performative agents who have the capacity to story themselves neurophysiologically (in both "top-down" and "bottom-up" ways) through their regular practices of wellness.
